LOW-BUDGET RPR Accurizing: Amazing Results (6.5 Creedmoor)

224 Valkyrie Laser Beam: Berger 80.5 Grain Load

With a 22 caliber high-power rifle like 223 Remington, you’ll start running out of steam beyond about 500 yards using conventional factory ammunition. Traditional 50 grain 22 caliber bullets just don’t have the momentum or aerodynamics (Ballistic Coefficient) to penetrate the wind much further than that with predictability. That’s really where cartridges like 224 Valkyrie […]

224 Valkyrie: Hornady 88 grain ELD-M Load Development Success

224 Valkyrie is all about pushing heavy high-BC bullets to crazy-long ranges with an AR-15, or even a bolt gun.
