Some shooters call Federal Premium’s new .224 Valkyrie, a “.223 on steroids.” While that may sound cliché, the point is this new cartridge is the world’s first supersonic, 1,300-yard cartridge designed for AR-15s.
The list of advantages held by the .224 Valkyrie starts with ballistic performance that’s more like the .22-250 Rem. than the .223 Rem. Loaded with 60- to 90-grain bullets, the .224 Valkyrie was developed by Federal Premium to bring more power to the AR-15 platform.
The newest high-speed cartridge developed for the AR-15 platform was just released by Federal Premium Ammunition in the form of the .224 Valkyrie, allowing supersonic velocity out to 1,300 yards.
Sierra Ammunition has announced the new Prairie Enemy Varmint and redator family of hunting cartridges.
Assistant Editor Connor McKibbin recently had the opportunity to join Federal Premium, Savage Arms and Bushnell in Texas to test Federal’s new .224 Valkyrie cartridge—the world’s first cartridge to remain supersonic at 1300 yards, designed specifically for AR-15s.
