Info from SHOT SHOW

NOW SAAMI approved...

http://www.gunsandammo.com/shot-show/shot-show-2018-range-day-federal-valkryie/




After weeks of pre-SHOT Show buzz, OSG senior digital editor Lynn Burkhead received a full fledged update from Federal Premium Ammunition’s JJ Reich on the company’s much talked about new 224 Valkyrie cartridge.

At Industry Day at the Range, Reich noted that the new 224 Valkyrie round has just received approval by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI) just prior to the start of SHOT Show 2018.

With tack-driving long range accuracy thanks to a flat trajectory and supersonic ballistics out as far as 1,300-yards, Reich noted that the 224 Valkyrie compares very favorably with popular long-range rounds like the 6.5 Creedmoor…with about half of the 6.5 Creedmoor’s felt recoil!

Add in several affordable bullet options from Federal Premium Ammunition, not to mention plenty of energy delivered to the target, and the new 224 Valkyrie round works for a wide variety of shooters ranging from casual plinkers to competitive shooters to hunters of medium-sized game like varmints, wild hogs, and white-tailed deer.

What’s more, when the 224 Valkyrie is coupled with firearms like Savage Arms’ new MSR 15 Valkyrie modern sporting rifle, Reich notes that the result is one of the shooting world’s most exciting new cartridges in years.

No wonder its one of the shooting and hunting industry’s most-talked about new items here on the eve of the SHOT Show’s 40th anniversary!

Hope the throats don't wear out before some good loads are worked up.

Can’t hear it hit or even see it hit when shooting steel at 600 yards. Great only for shooting paper. 6.5 Grendel still the best AR15 based round.

Nah, the 6.8SPC as originally designed in my book. Puts a bigger hole in the critter at all usefull hunting ranges. Not worried about paper ballistics with trajectory and 100yd probabilities.

Daryl, it isn't a Weatherby or Nosler so a case only holding up to 35? grains of powder I don't think will burn to many throats.

Change the name to .224 Creedmoor and they will sell like brownies in in Colorado.
