VERY excited about this build. Working on putting together the longest range rifle I will own in .224 Valkyrie. If you don’t know about the ballistic properties of this round look it up. It has an effective kill range of one mile and stays supersonic to 1300 yards. At one mile range still hits with nearly 1000 ft lbs of kinetic energy but at that range it’s dropping off fast so really effective range is 1300-1400 yards (one mile is 1760). The build to date hasn’t exactly been cheap, but the cost of optics that reach out a mile dwarf the overall cost. Suggestions? #reachoutandtouchsomeone#224valkyrie#ar15build#longrangerifle
A lot of people are claiming the moral high ground today. Funny, the vast majority of them know nothing about the physical high ground and that there are those who have the skills and ability to secure it. On a lighter note, I’m digging this #224valkyrie build! It’s not nearly as heavy as a lot of precision gas guns: 12.5lbs as pictured, suppressed and loaded. The @geissele #airbornecharginghandle is growing on me and the @cmctriggers 2.5lb #flattrigger is amazingly smooth and breaks softer than triggers of half the pull weight. The @midwestindustries rail is crazy light with a low profile and the clearance for the bipod mlok screws and the gas block is CLOSE but it works and feels great. The @griffin_armament #optimusmicro tames the 224V and 5.56 amazingly well...after the first round pop I can’t tell the difference between it and my Recce 5. I’m also getting some amazing groups from the #ultramatchmod2 barrel from @rainierarms and I have a lot more bullets and powder combos to keep trying. Man, I love shooting and experimenting with this stuff! #gunsofinstagram#suppressednation#buildyourownar15#handloader#reloadersofinstagram#blackguns#rattlecanpaintjob#woodlandcamo#tapermount
The buck I harvested in Texas with the @federalpremium and @mossyoak guys using the then brand new, yet to be released, .224 Valkyrie is home! I am making a shadow box with the recovered round and spent case from the hunt. Why is this South Texas buck so important to me? Well, I made some great new friends in camp and hung out with old ones, but this is the first White Tail buck ever taken with the .224 Valkyrie. It was an honor to be offered this opportunity. @cameraman.mac @jj_reicho #224valkyrie#whitetaildeer#texas
