Just finished this today. Now to load the formed cases and get to the range and varmint fields to fire form the brass. Yeah, I know, the California compliant grip looks weird but, when you live in Commie run state you do what ya' gotta' do.😡

I bet you'll love the 'goose!  I sure do.  I gave one to my Nephew, his first ever wildcat.  He is addicted now too...

Hahaha...my fat fingers called it a Moongoose. What the hell is a Moon Goose?

If I can get 80-90gr non lead hunting bullets to perform in that 1-10 barrel I may just use this to hunt deer this year instead of the planned Grendel. If I do and get lucky again that would be 3 deer in 3 years with 3 different MDWS wildcats. Wolverine in 2017, 27GPC in 2018 and the Goose in 2019. 👍👌

Goose Moon- the month in the spring where the geese are having more geese. They are really pissy this time of year and you can't do a thing about it because they are protected.
Moon Goose sounds more Oriental though- like "This is really tasty Moon Goose"...or "I'd like you to meet my sensai Mister Moon Goose"...

LOL, thanks for that!👍 Made my day. I always wanted a rifle named after goose mating season. Maybe it will be the next MDWS wildcat named after pissy, horny geese? What ya' think Mark, Bruce? Subsonic, long range ballistics with wings that deploy in flight.😉

I've got test loads put together with 55gr Dogtowns from 26.5 to 29gr H335. Even with raw formed cases at 29 there was no compression with those .6" shorties at 2.12 OAL. I suspect 28 or 28.5 is where I'll end up for just the fire forming while making the squirrels pay. If...I can get to the range in time.

OK. Did my fire forming load testing. Forgot the new Magnetospeed Chrono of course, duh. No matter. I am very impressed with the Goose. It liked two loads with the 55g Dog Towns and H335 (WC-844) but shot all but two others very well. It liked 27g (<.7 at 50, .7 at 100 with no pressure) and 28.5g (<.7 at 50, .5 at 200 with very slight primer flattening no swipes. 29gr produced moderate flattening and light swiping. That's probably Max and groups were opening up to 1.5 MOA. At 26.8g it was almost same hole accuracy at 50 but opened to 1.5 MOA at 100. All loads from 26.5 - 29 functioned perfectly with the BCA side charger. The picture is the 27gr load at 100 yards, 10 round group. That's the one I'll load for squirrels and fire forming the 400+ cases left to do.

Excellent caliber. Low recoil, reliable function and very good accuracy, especially considering this was raw formed brass I was fire forming.
