Federal has announced two new flat-shooting premium .224 Valkyrie loads that are designed to deliver precision accuracy at long ranges: an 80.5-grain Gold Medal Berger Hybrid and a 78-grain Barnes Triple-Shock X.

As with all .224 Valkyrie offerings, the new loads provide exceptionally flat trajectories and match accuracy at extreme ranges. According to Federal, they offer significantly less wind drift and drop than other loads in their class, as well as less than half the recoil of cartridges with comparable ballistics.

"The .224 Valkyrie cartridge's dramatically improved trajectories over all other MSR-15 cartridges, including the .22 Nosler, .223 Rem. and 6.5 Grendel—with less recoil of larger cartridges offering comparable ballistics, such as the 6.5 Creedmoor,” said Federal Centerfire Product Director Mike Holm. “And with the full array of high-performance projectiles available, it’s poised to deliver on virtually every shooter’s needs. For those looking for something new, different and better from their AR-15 platform, the .224 Valkyrie is it.”

The 80.5 Gold Medal Berger Hybrid has an MSRP of $32.94 per 20-round box, while the 78-grain Barnes Triple-Shock X has an MSRP of $35.95 per 20-round box.
