224 Valkyrie, a new AR 15 caliber from Federal. Just saw this new caliber in a Midway email flier (they send about 3 per day). 90gr SMK .224 @ 2700 fps. It's a necked down 6.8 case. Interesting, though not sure I would have a real need. Thoughts?

sounds like a nice load for the 600 yard score matches they shoot with AR15`s and M1A`s that you dont have to shoot 5.56 or 7.62,,heck it would probably be better than 308 at 1,000 yards,,

It's a great option for target shooting. It does nothing for me personally. For hunting, I'd rather have a 6.5 Grendel.

Me too. That 6.8 is a heck of a round

Wonder what it push a 53 gn Barnes in A 22 inch barrel
Closest factory load to that is 60gr Nosler BT listed at 3300fps.

So did anyone latch on to one, and work up loads? I just picked one up - 20” Larue Tactical

Nice snag. I was eyeing that one over on the other site. Let us know how it goes. I never took the leap on the Valkyrie.

He made it impossible to say no to.. LOTS of extras, and such a nice piece. Trigger is unbelievable too
