How the newest MSR 15 round outpaces all of its competition

Federal Premium’s 224 Valkyrie takes the long-range precision and ballistic performance of the MSR 15 platform to unheard of heights.

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Federal Premium’s new 224 Valkyrie cartridge transforms the MSR 15 platform into a 1,000-yard tack driver, unleashes shooters’ full downrange potential and shatters the boundaries of ballistic performance.

Initially available in a 90-grain Gold Medal Sierra MatchKing, 60-grain Nosler Ballistic Tip Varmint, 90-grain Fusion MSR and 75-grain American Eagle TMJ, the lineup offers a bullet for everything from casual target shooting to serious competition and hunting everything from varmints to medium-size game like deer and hogs.

But how does the cartridge’s ballistics stack up to similar and even larger competition?

Coming In Hot

The 224 Valkyrie is fast. A round loaded with the 90-grain Gold Medal Sierra MatchKing produces a muzzle velocity of 2,700 feet per second; it maintains a blistering 1,950 fps pace at 500 yards and 1,359 fps when crossing the 1,000-yard line. In fact, it remains supersonic (faster than the speed of sound) past 1,300 yards. Velocities are based on 24-inch test barrels with a 1:7 twist.
