Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sub MOA #Win224Valkyrie Bought this for my daughter to hunt with. Was very pleased to see it shoot sub moa with a PSA upper. Excited to see what my daughter can harvest with it this fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from (FUSION)... should have named it HOG stopper I have had the opportunity to harvest numerous wild board this past week using Federal Fusion 90 Grain 224 Valkyrie Ammunition. I shot the Fusion ammunition using a Savage MSR 224 Valkyrie, my new go to hog stopper. I am highly impressed with the bullets accuracy at ranges any were from 150 - 300 yards and would not have hesitated to take longer shots if they would have presented itself. This in fact is due to the bullets ability to retain weight and penetration at long ranges trucking along at 2700 FPS muzzle velo and in my experience, making that special sound when that bullet hits its mark stopping each hog in its tracks. Placing a shot just behind the ear of a wild boar could have been tougher if I wasn't shooting Federal's Fusion Ammo! #fusionhogstopper #nailedit! #https://www.federalpremium.com/products/rifle/fusion/fusion-msr/f224vlkmsr1 Cheers,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance on deer I built my daughter a .224 Valkyrie for hunting coyotes and deer. She wasn’t quite ready to pull the trigger this year so I tried the Federal 90gr Fusions in two whitetail doe. One was a very large doe standing 100yds facing me and one shot in the base of the neck/chest dropped her in her tracks. No exit wound but the bullet stayed together and was found in the spine after destroying approx 3in of it. The other was a yearling doe at 100yds slightly quartering away. Again one shot in the neck dropped the deer in its tracks. the bullet entered and shattered the spine exiting with about a 3in hole. I am very confident in this load for deer and antelope within 400yds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! I have just built my 224 Valkrie. 22 inch heavy stainless Radical upper on an Anderson lower. Boresighted to a 50-75 yd mark. First round down range was in the paper at 100. Twelve clicks and five rounds later left me at 2 - 2.5 inches high. Next three rounds we're at 200 yds and we're in an 1.5 group. Went and shot it again today but expanded the range to the max distance that I could find. So in essence, right now, I am holding consistent shot groups of about 3 inches high at 100yds, about an inch high at 200yds, and about 2 inches low at 300. No misfires, no flyers, and no blown primers. Can't wait to drop one on a deer or in a pigs ear. That's where the rubber meets the road, expansion and penetration.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blown primers in Savage MSR15 Recon LRP I love fusion ammo. Hunt with it in 338 Federal, 6.5 creed and 7-08. Was so glad when I saw this load for the Valkyrie. After firing first 5 shots out my brand new rifle had 3 blown primers and a dead trigger twice. Pretty sure it’s the rifle and am sending it back. Really hope these issues get worked out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from When the primers don't blow out and jam your rifle these shoot very well but after 6 jams due to primers blowing out this makes my Savage Valkyrie not reliable
