224 Valkyrie Ammo is a Federal Premium design released in 2018 that has the same bullet diameter as 223/5.56 ammo, but with a larger 6.8 SPC case that can handle heavier bullets and higher velocities. The MSR can therefore reach out to 1,000 yards.

History of .224 Valkyrie Ammo:
As one of the most controversial rounds on the market today, .224 Valkyrie ammo has many reasons to be so. In the opinion of some, the 223 Remington is just an enhanced version of the 44 magnum, while others claim it is the best ballistic innovation since the 44 magnum. Which is correct?
In actuality, the answer is much more nuanced than either a “yes” or a “nay.” It is, however, a very popular round to build an AR. It doesn’t matter whether you like the 224 Valkyrie round – it occupies a market niche that was simply unfilled prior to its invention in 2017.
What is the .224 Valkyrie?
To begin, let us clarify what the 224 Valkyrie is and why it was created. It was developed by Federal Premium Ammunition to compete with the .22 Nosler. This round is designed to be used in modern sporting rifles for use at long ranges. The bullet diameter of the 7.62x39mm NATO round is the same as that of the 5.56x45mm NATO round, but the round’s neck has been shortened to accommodate larger bullets, and as a result, its muzzle velocity is higher than that of the 5.56x45mm NATO round.
This round immediately became a serious competitor for the well-established 6.5mm Creedmoor and 308 Winchester long-range sporting rounds. There are a number of rounds that it is related to, including the 10mm auto, the G .224 Boz, the .357 Sig, the .40 S&W, the 9x25mm Dillon, and the 9x25mm Super Auto.
In addition to competitions, there are many other aspects that make up the 224 Valkyrie round. The round is also great for hunting and varmint shooting. Fast processing speed and high accuracy allow it to operate more than 1,000 feet away from a location without losing accuracy. Having a round that shoots so accurately from such a long distance may not be the sort of thing you “need,” but you might simply find it enjoyable to shoot it from such a distance. 224 Valkyrie Ammo For Sale
A Comparison Of .223 And .224 Valkyrie:
Comparing the .224 Valk to the 223 is inevitable when discussing this cartridge. There are certainly differences between the rounds, but since they are commonly mentioned in the same breath, this requires a discussion of these differences as well as similarities.
The AR platform has some physical limitations. The wells have a limit of size, so you cannot make them big enough before you get a single-shot breech-loading weapon – which is quite opposite to the AR-15. First and foremost, you can’t fire them from the same weapon. You’ll need a gun chambered specifically for the 223 Rem and a gun chambered specifically for .224 Valkyrie.
As a result, you only need the 224 Valkyrie bolt, 224 Valkyrie magazine, and 224 Valkyrie barrel if you already have an AR-15 build that can fire 224 Valk instead of .223 Rem. Since the AR-15 is a highly customizable weapon with adherents who generally enjoy customizing anyway, this shouldn’t be a problem for people who own it.
It’s about the same on recoil for both rounds. In my experience, people who have never fired an AR-15 for the first time are often surprised by how smooth it fires, with a great deal less recoil than they would expect for a weapon so demonized in American media. Aside from the fact that the 224 Valkyrie is more accurate and has more power than the 223 Valkyrie, the 223 does, however, have a higher muzzle velocity, It also boasts greater kinetic energy and less drag than the 226, as well as less drag over distance.
Could 224 Valkyrie ammo have a better performance than 223 Remington ammo? It’s hard to predict whether it’ll catch on in the same way as the 223, but ballistics technology has advanced over time, just like all other types of technology. The 224 Valk rifle might well make the 223 Remington go the way of the dodo because of its superior ballistic characteristics. However, shooters are finicky people who tend to like what they like. The chances of you switching to 224 Valk from the 223 Remington are slim if you prefer the 223 Remington.
The 224 Valk touts many appealing attributes for all kinds of shooters. It might simply be a beefed-up 223, but should that be considered a bad thing?
