Savage Arms has introduced the new MSR 15 (modern sporting rifle) rifle, a platform chambered for Federal Premium Ammunition's new 224 Valkyrie.


Together, the combination of new rifle and new cartridge from the two Vista Outdoors' companies reportedly squeezes out top-end performance from the hot new round, one that is said to offer superb long-range accuracy as well as top-end ballistic performance.

With the round's flat trajectories, supersonic velocities up to 1,300-yards downrange, and superb accuracy, the 224 Valkyrie round brings only about half the recoil that larger cartridges need to achieve similar trajectories and numbers.

With an upgraded 18-inch barrel with 5R rifling, a crisp two-stage trigger, and a protective Elite Series Cerakote upper and lower finish, this new rifle also offers an adjustable mid-length gas system that can be customized to specific ammunition for reliable cycling.

Add in the firearm's Hogue pistol grip, a UBR Gen 2 buttstock, a forward assist, an adjustable gas block and a muzzle brake with 1/2X28 Class 3-barrel thread, and there is much to like in the new modern sporting rifle.
