Rated 3 out of 5 by from Finally got this caliber to work for me Finally my 20" Wilson Combat barrel with a match trigger from Gisele allowed me to shoot this round sub MOA. I shot 4" diameter at 613 yards - after months of trying. But I must add that getting this caliber to work was very much a frustrating experience. i would take the 6.5 Creedmoor over this caliber anyday. so much easier to shoot good groups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly Happy! I bought a case of this ammo and not one issue. It seems the Savage MSR 15 guys have lots of problems. My rifle is an Aero/Ballistic Advantage built 20" 1:7. Shoots MOA all day with AE 75gr TMJ.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good ammo thus far. I have yet to test the round beyond a 100 yards but At that distance I was shooting .841 average groups. I have a 24” 1-6.5 twist barrel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DISAPPOINTING I drank the Kool Aid and bought 4 .224 rifles and a lot of Federal .224 both 75 and 90 grain. Went to a range I go to every year and after carting this gun to Vegas and meeting my friend who just bought a JP Custom .224 we were both underwhelmed with the round. The groups were inconsistent and the drop was not much better than a .223. In fact he brought his Les Baer Thunder Ranch .223 with a 16: barrel and it crushed both of our "magic" .224 rifles, even at extreme distances. I would take my .308's or 6.5's against this new round any day of the week. My friend is a retired Army Captain and a gun dealer who shoots lights out so I know it wasn't me it was the round.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blown primers Bolt locked up tight in the barrel extension due to lost primers several times. Fusions ran fine in the same setup but the cost advantage was no longer there. Not a Savage firearm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly accurate I shot 224 Valkyrie 75 grain for the first time and boy was I surprised. I walked up to my target and all but one of my bullet holes were touching. The one straggler was my fault. This is at 50 yards without a bench rest. I was leaning up against my 4x4 with kids in it . So I took the target out to 120 yards and started zeroing my scope with 90 grain soft points. the wind was gusting to 10 miles an hour . This round is everything they say it is. I am just a weekend shooter. By no means a Marksman. I would recommend breaking your Barrel in cheerfully. I clean mine before and after the first shot and then every few shots. This is the only AR that I want to shoot now. As well as 224 Valkyrie shoots, I don't think it's going away anytime soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good! Reading all of the reviews from this site and other sites, I was worried about damaging my new rifle. I must say that I had no blown primers and the ammo shot great. It shot groups better than the SMK ammo. Using a Stag Arms upper. Most of the bad reviews I read are related to the Savage MSR so I think it’s the rifle and not the ammo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed bought a savage msr-15 and ran the 75gn tmj's through it, first 100 rnd's it shot amazing sub moa out to 300 yrds easy, measured the OAL 2.225-2.220 , was getting great accuracy bought another 100 and it looks like i took a shot gun to the paper. easy 2 in groups at 100 yrds which is horrible compared to what i was getting before. measured OAL ranged from 2.112 to 2.123 . So overall very disappointed with how inconsistent the seating depths are which is clearly impacting accuracy. Hoping federal wakes up and starts producing more consistent ammo ):
