Starline Brass adds to their growing line of rifle brass with the release of the .224 Valkyrie. The popular .224 Valkyrie rifle caliber has grabbed the attention of many long-range shooters by offering a high ballistic coefficient (BC) in an affordable and accessible platform.
The .224 Valkyrie was introduced in late 2017 by Federal Premium Ammunition. Unlike many calibers created in a joint effort between an ammo company and a single firearms company, the .224 Valkyrie is already being chambered by several AR-15 manufacturers including LaRue, JP Enterprises, and CMMG, as well as several barrel makers.
The .224 Valkyrie is touted for its long range capabilities. While it's not the fastest factory .22 caliber AR chambering, the .224 Valkyrie's short, fat case allows it to fit longer, high BC bullets. This means that it can keep a 90 grain Sierra bullet supersonic to 1300 yards, with much less recoil than other calibers. AR- type rifles can be converted by changing the barrel and using a 6.8 SPC bolt and magazines.
