During SHOT Show 2019, Federal expanded its options for the 224 Valkyrie with three new loads: 60-grain Hornady V-Max, 80.5-grain Gold Medal Berger Hybrid, and 78-grain Barnes Triple-Shock X (TSX). After these three additions, the 224 Valkyrie line is now at seven different types of ammo to meet all your needs.
New 224 Valkyrie provides comparable ballistics as larger counterparts like 6.5 Creedmoor but with as little as half the felt recoil.

The 7 loads of the 224 Valkyrie
- BARNES TRIPLE-SHOCK X
Extend the reach of non-lead hunting ammunition with the 78-grain Barnes® TSX. The all-copper hollow point groups tightly at long range, delivers lethal expansion and penetrates deep.
- GOLD MEDAL BERGER HYBRID
Take 224 Valkyrie farther with the 80.5-grain Gold Medal® Berger® Hybrid. The advanced boat-tail bullet’s high ballistic coefficient provides the flattest trajectories, less wind drift and surgical long-range accuracy.
- VARMINT & PREDATOR HORNADY V-MAX
Loaded with a 60-grain Hornady® V-Max® bullet, the 224 Valkyrie destroys everything from prairie dogs to coyotes. The polymer tip, hollow nose cavity and thin jacket produce superior accuracy and explosive expansion.
- NOSLER BALLISTIC TIP VARMINT
The 224 Valkyrie is built to defeat wind drift and drop, and the 60-grain Nosler® Ballistic Tip® Varmint maximizes these built-in ballistics with a sleek, thin-jacket, polymer-tipped bullet. Its explosive expansion provides a violent energy release on impact for quick kills on varmints and predators.
- AMERICAN EAGLE TMJ
Train like never before with 224 Valkyrie and American Eagle® rifle. The loads feature Federal® brass, clean-burning powder, consistent primers and accurate 75-grain TMJ® bullets. They’re the ultimate range ammunition for the ultimate MSR 15 cartridge.
- GOLD MEDAL SIERRA MATCHKING
Extract the full long-range potential from 224 Valkyrie with the 90-grain Sierra MatchKing®. The bullet design has been shot to win more matches than any other, thanks to a uniform jacket that ensures consistent, long-range accuracy, and a sleek boat-tail that maximizes ballistic coefficient.
- FUSION MSR
Virtually every component in Fusion® MSR is optimized for peak ballistic performance in modern sporting rifles. New 90-grain 224 Valkyrie extends range even further, offering devastating accuracy and terminal performance on medium game—with half the recoil of cartridges with similar ballistics.
