Does the Badger have room for the 120gr - 130 gr bullets like the Wolverine does?

yes it should run the 120 sst and the short 130's  basically most bullets in the wlv are loaded 2.18-2.2 the badger will have a case length .016 shorter than the 6.8 gpc or spc so any bullet that fits in them will fit in the badger but i will say right up front  it will run best with the 90-110 bullets

The Badger appears to be something I think I would be quite interested in. Would this have a COAL in the 2.26-2.95"length?

2.295 will be standard oal, not all bullets will need that long but the high bc or long nose bullets will.

I know this is an old picture, but I just realized that the depth of field/perspective is off.  It makes the Mongoose rounds look bigger than the GPC or Big Cat lines.  Obviously a wide angle lens was used.

it looks about right rifter, the mongoose line is 1.69 case length, gpc is 1.68 for the 27 and 1.62 for the rest and the fat cats are 1.575 -1.596

ok so here is a wlv goldot 2.16 oal, badger golddot 2.23 oal, badger 110 vmax 2.27 oal


to note the badger case is .155 longer than the wolverine with the wolverine throat for now so how ever bullets sit in the wolverine just add .155 to the length and that is what they will be in the badger for now

I'm itching to see what it will do with a 95gr TTSX!
How does the Shooters World B.O. compare with the CFE B.O.?

cfe black, 1680, and shooter black are almost the same. I have used the cfe with the data for shooters world and had the same result
