What is the 224 Valkyrie Round?
The 224 Valkyrie Round is a 90 grain 6.8 bullet necked down to a 224 which is stable to 1000 yards. The 224 Valkyrie round is a new round from FC (Federal) that beats out the .22 Nosler, 6.5 Grendel and 5.56 round in all aspects and starts to approach on the 6.5 Creedmore while doing all of this on an AR platform.
What do we mean by this?
This round will provide you the energy retention of the 6.5 Grendel, comparable drop and drift of the 6.5 Creedmoor at 1000 yards and the up close power of the .22 Nosler. Bringing you the best of three different rounds into one superior round that can be used for both long range and short range without compromising either.
Why is 224 Valkyrie such a game changer?
It is trying to match the 6.5 Creedmore in drop and drift with a much smaller caliber, all while beating out the 6.5 Grendel with lower recoil and improved energy retention, and all this with the up close power of the .22 Nosler. Making this a comparable long range round but in a much smaller caliber, that is also much more versatile and able to be used in multiple situations.
What is this round used for?
With a round that is this versatile, it should be looked at by military and law enforcement because if it is put into 16-inch barrel rifle it could be used for both long-range precision shots as well as close range situations.
For the shooters out there this round could help be a great choice for shooting competitions because of the loss of energy at longer ranges will help make the longer range shots with some power left over.
A round like this would be great for hunters as it will have the ability to hunt varments to medium game.
