I have been reading a little about the cartridge, it sounds like it could be a interest cartridge. Any knowledge on this would be great. I was going to have a 6.5 grendel made, but 224 valkyrie sounds better.


Thanks. J

Could do a switch Barrel. SOLD

It’s pretty new. Showing promise in gas guns

It's basically a 6.8spc necked to .224".

With Sierra's heavy weight MatchKing's, it stays super out to around 1300 yards. Lot of potential...

PTG has a reamer, Which bolt face you be used.

If it's based on the 6.8spc (30 rem) its between the 223 and 308. You would have to open a 223 or bush a 308 and use a sako or m16 extractor. PTG may make a specific bolt for it as well.

What twist rate would you think. It's 1-7 on the ar barrels I've been finding.

I haven't seen any info on the factory twist rates but if you want to shoot the heavies, I don't think you'd go wrong with a 7 twist.

There are some real heavies that are available that call for a 6.5 twist, I have a 22 Creedmoor with a 7 twist that I just ordered some new 95 grain Sierra's plus some of their 90 grainers to see how they will fly. The new 95 grain bullet has a list G1 B.C. of .600!
