BUY Federal Premium Gold Medal Sierra MatchKing .224 Valkyrie 77Grain
Federal Premium Gold Medal Sierra MatchKing .224 Valkyrie 77Grain cartridge is a .22 caliber (5.6 mm) rimless bottlenecked intermediate rifle cartridge, developed by Federal Premium Ammunition to rival the performance of the .22 Nosler, while still being compatible with modern sporting rifles. .224 Valkyrie uses the same bullet diameter as 5.56×45mm NATO and a necked down larger case from the 6.8 SPC allowing for heavier bullets and higher muzzle velocity. In order to fill a need for long range small platform modern sporting rifles, the .224 Valkyrie was developed by Federal by taking their proven 6.8 SPC case and necking it down to utilize a .224 diameter projectile. Prior to this, the ability to compete at long range (1000+ meters or yards) was dominated in competition by the large-frame MSR’s, primarily in .308 Winchester and 6.5mm Creedmoor.
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.
