Savage Arms Introduces New 224 Valkyrie Modern Sporting Rifle.
WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – Savage is pleased to introduce a modern sporting rifle built to squeeze the maximum performance from the hottest new round in long-range shooting. The new Savage MSR 15 Valkyrie is chambered for Federal Premium Ammunition’s 224 Valkyrie. Together, rifle and cartridge take the popular MSR 15 platform to unheard of heights in long-range precision and ballistic performance. Savage will showcase the new 224 Valkyrie MSR at the 2018 SHOT Show January 23-26 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 224 Valkyrie produces flat trajectories, supersonic velocities up to 1,300 yards downrange and match-grade accuracy. Plus, it produces only half the recoil of larger cartridges needed to achieve comparable trajectories.
The competition-ready MSR 15 Valkyrie gets the most from the new cartridge’s unprecedented capabilities with an upgraded 18-inch barrel with 5R rifling and a crisp two-stage trigger. Its Elite Series Cerakote finish forms a tough, protective layer on the upper and lower, and its adjustable mid-length gas system can be customized to specific ammunition for the most reliable cycling.
