224 Valkyrie

Showing all 4 results


  • .224 Valkyrie 70 Grain Barnes TSX- The 224 Valkyrie cartridge is a rimless bottlenecked intermediate rifle cartridge that was developed by Federal Ammunition to rival the .22 Nosler while still running well in modern sporting rifles. Based on the 6.8 SPC case, shortened to 1.600-inch, the .224 Valkyrie uses a 30-degree shoulder for headspacing. The rimless case functions perfectly in the 6.8 SPC magazines for the AR-15 platform, and the overall cartridge length of 2.260 inches coincides with that magazine dimension.

    In order to fill a need for a long range “small platform” Modern Sporting Rifle, the proven 6.8 SPC case is necked it down to utilize a .224 projectile. Prior to this, the ability to compete at long range (1000+ yards) was dominated in competition by the large frame MSR’s, primarily in .308 Winchester and 6.5mm Creedmoor. Looking to fill the gap between .22 caliber rounds and the ever popular 6.5 Creedmoor, the new .224 Valkyrie round pushes 1300 yards with flat trajectories and match-grade accuracy.

    The Valkyrie sits comfortably between the .223 Remington and the 6mms in that they can happily do double duty on varmints and deer alike. The Valkyrie gives up a bit of bullet weight to the .243 Winchester, 6mm Remington and 6mm Creedmoor, yet it does make a good target gun. The lighter loads are smartly designed for the predator hunter; they’re sandwiched between .223 and .22-250 as far as performance goes, and that’s not a bad place to be. The caliber also has significantly reduced recoil compared to any other cartridge with similar ballistics.

    Our 100% Hand-Loaded 70 grain Barnes TSX lead free rounds are loaded with extremely tight tolerances, producing highly accurate, consistent and reliable performance with each and every shot for the .224 Valkyrie! Our proprietary load formulas and loading process create the finest round of ammunition available on the commercial market today we feel. This round will remain supersonic beyond 1,300 yards with wind drift less than anything in it’s class. If you don’t load your own ammunition- let us do it for you!

     

    The Bullet:

    Since its introduction in 2003, Barnes’ TSX Bullet has earned a reputation as “the perfect hunting bullet.” This lead-free, 100% copper-constructed bullet provides extreme penetration every time. Typically, this premium hunting bullet retains 100% of its original weight even after smashing through dense tissue and heavy bone. The Triple – Shock bullet design incorporates a series of precisely positioned rings cut into the bullet’s body. These grooves relieve firing pressure, allowing the TSX to be safely loaded to higher velocities while reducing copper fouling. The bonus is that this is one of the most accurate hunting bullets you can buy.

Their accuracy has been acclaimed worldwide and they have been used to win more target competitions than all target bullets from other manufacturers combined. Weight retention is held to within +/- 0.3 grain. Each bullet is a hollow point and is designed with a very small meplat in order to achieve the highest ballistic coefficient possible.

Thank you for visiting Choice Ammunition!Home of Premium Ammunition- 100% Hand-Loaded in Western Montana.

As you may know, the ammunition and firearms industry is experiencing unprecedented times beginning with COVID 19 coming from China in early 2020. Some talked of defunding police departments about the same time, even as riots and lawlessness raged on in our cities with unrest. We then saw a very contentious presidential campaign and ultimately- an inauguration of what could be a very unfriendly 2nd Amendment administration controlling both houses of Congress. For these reasons and more, we see demand at all time highs in the industry, in addition to mass shortages of components. I personally do not see things changing any time soon either...

With this, we are doing everything possible to hand-load and get products shipped in a timely manner, but we cannot simply turn machines up like others! Any back-orders on this website that we allow, we feel will ship in a reasonable period of time and we are averaging about 2-3 weeks presently. However, we are reliant on our suppliers to deliver components to us also, and that can unexpectedly be delayed on occasion. When this happens, it is possible to see 30-60 days, and sometimes more- to get ammunition sent out to you. Please know, all backorders will be filled at the price you purchased the ammunition for. If you find something elsewhere- we are happy to cancel any order.

We try to answer all office calls and prefer calls over emails or social media. We ask you to please refrain from calling or changing your order unless it is absolutely necessary- keeping in mind the time-frames I mentioned above. Every call we answer removes the focus on sourcing components and loading/shipping your ammunition!  We promise to get your order out as soon as we possibly can- yet, ask that you please understand this crazy market we are all in- if indeed you are delayed!

We do not believe in price gouging or increasing margins in a market such as this- and we will do everything possible to remain competitive with “factory” ammo, while providing our premium hand-loaded ammunition to the market. It does appear that prices may increase this year however, as there is much volatility in pricing for our brass, bullets, powder and primers.

Thank you for considering Choice Ammunition if you are a new customer- and thank you for another order if you are returning. We truly appreciate all of you and have built our business from going the extra mile with our products and for our customers!
