The .224 Valkyrie has been the most talked about cartridge over the past year for the AR-15 platform, and for good reason. Savage Arms has released several rifles chambered in the cartridge, and its newest rifle, the MSR-15 Long Range, is designed specifically to further the cartridge’s potential.

Capable of taking full advantage of the .224 Valkyrie, Savage used a six-groove button-rifled 22-inch stainless steel barrel with a 1:7” twist to stabilize the heaviest of .224-caliber bullets.

Accuracy-enhancing components include a free-floating M-Lok handguard, a two-port, tunable muzzle brake and a two-stage trigger. 

A long-range rig capable of taking pests and predators alike needs to fit the shooter well and provide solid anchor points against the rifle, which is why the MSR-15 Long Range includes a Magpul PRS Gen 3 adjustable stock and a Hogue pistol grip.

A few other additions to increase reliability are the nickel-boron bolt carrier and a custom-length gas system that makes use of a low-profile adjustable gas block. A built-in flat-top rail on the receiver allows for mounting a variety of optics.

The new MSR-15 Long Range has an MSRP of $1,849. For more information, visit savagearms.com.
