Could this be the trigger I’ve been looking for to take my long-range AR to the next level? Read on! Starting Point: Geissele Automatics DMR National Match I’ve been […]

Results: 224 Valkyrie Starline Brass Torture Test

Reloading 224 Valkyrie is pretty much the same as reloading most other bottleneck rifle cartridges. However, there are some unique considerations when you’re dealing with a “hotrod” magnum cartridge like 224 Valkyrie. One of these considerations is brass life/longevity- namely the primer pockets. I’ve heard a lot of stories of 224 Valkyrie brass only lasting […]

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. For 224 Valkyrie, I started working with a mid-weight bullets (Nosler 70 grain RDF), and have been working my way up in weight- and hope to top out at about 95 grains. While the Nosler […]

224 Valkyrie Hybrid Load Development/Validation

Load development is a very personal and sometimes even a controversial thing. Precision-minded shooters tend to adopt their own “obsessive” or “religious” rituals when it comes to finding the perfect load for their rifles.

224 Valkyrie at 600 Yards: Bolt -vs- AR with Unexpected Results

Do you ever get tired of shooting paper targets? I know I do!

And that’s where a good range […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P8: Barrel Break In, First Groups, First Loads

Breaking in the barrel for a rifle you’ve built is a truly unique and exciting experience. Will the gun blow up? Will the rifle shoot well? Will my new trigger meet my expectations? It’s like sea trials for a new ship, but with a precision instrument. As I was finishing my Remington 700 224 Valkyrie […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P7: AICS Magazine Conversion

When you go “off the script” (like building a 224 Valkyrie bolt-action rifle) you can expect some challenges. One such challenge with this kind of build is getting a reliable magazine configuration setup. A lot of guys have spent a lot of hours tinkering with magazines, springs, followers, lip geometry and more with a common […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P6: KRG Bravo Stock, TriggerTech Special Trigger

All of the hard work I’ve put into this 224 Valkyrie Remington 700 build is about to come together, literally! With a complete barreled action assembly, it’s time to install our trigger, and then mate the stock and barreled action together. I can hardly wait to take this rifle to the range! And by the […]
