More 224 Valkyrie Loads

Federal transformed the AR-15 platform by introducing the 224 Valkyrie cartridge. Hunters and shooters now have three additional loads that stretch the cartridge’s capabilities even further: the 80.5-grain Gold Medal Berger Hybrid, 60-grain Hornady V-Max and 78-grain Barnes Triple-Shock X.

Flattens the Competition at 1,000 Yards

The MSR 15 has never offered practical 1,000-yard performance. That's all changed thanks to the heavier bullets and extremely high ballistic coefficients of new 224 Valkyrie. Loaded with the 90-grain Gold Medal Sierra MatchKing, the cartridge offers as much as 127.88 inches less drop and 68.76 inches less wind drift at 1,000 yards when compared to existing MSR 15 cartridges.

Innovation To Break Boundaries

The 224 Valkyrie from Federal Premium is the first AR-15 cartridge to offer controlled recoil and supersonic velocities past 1,300 yards.
