Clocking in at supersonic velocities beyond 1,300 yards, with a flat trajectory and great match accuracy, Federal Premium Ammunition’s .224 Valkyrie Ammunition recently earned the Ammo Innovation of the Year award.

The National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) annual meeting was held in Pittsburgh on Oct. 24, and the group recognized Federal for the significance behind their product’s innovation.

“We are honored that the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers has recognized the significance and performance potential of this innovative and exciting new cartridge,” Federal Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink said. “Loaded in an array of high-performance projectiles, .224 Valkyrie is the new choice for long-range target shooters and hunters alike. The .224 Valkyrie marks the next evolution of the MSR 15 platform.”

The ammunition, compared to other loads in its class, has markedly less wind drift and drop, as well as less than half the recoil of cartridges with similar ballistic capabilities. The .224 Valkyrie cartridge was initially available in four product lines and offers options for competitors, long-range target shooters and game hunters who shoot anything from varmints to deer.

“This award means a lot to us at Federal. It shows the support of our two-step distribution partners,” said Jim Bruno, Federal’s Senior Vice President of Sales. “Our distributors have backed this product line, and with their support, we’re able to get the product launched and replenished to our independent dealer channels all over the U.S., Canada and Internationally. This new .224 caliber platform is just the beginning. It is the first in a pipeline of new and innovative products from Federal.”
