ANOKA, Minnesota – May 24, 2018 – Federal Premium launches a new load in 224 Valkyrie aimed at long-range target shooters with its release of 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. Shipments have been delivered to dealers.
Federal Premium recently developed the 224 Valkyrie cartridge, which transforms the MSR 15 platform and shatters the boundaries of ballistic performance. It provides match accuracy, supersonic velocities beyond 1,300 yards, significantly less wind drift and drop than other loads in its class, and less than half the recoil of cartridges with comparable ballistics.

• All-new cartridge produces the least wind drift and drop in its class
• Supersonic past 1,300 yards
• Significantly less recoil than other cartridges with comparable ballistics
• Better ballistic performance than any other MSR 15 cartridge
• Superb accuracy and extreme long-range performance in bolt-action rifles
