Just saw a new round called the .224 Valkyrie. Quite impressive. Anyone have a rifle chambered in this yet and if so, what are your thoughts?

First question, "no." Second question, "yet another answer to a question nobody asked." If you want to go out and touch 1,000 yards in an AR platform, why not just bite the bullet (so to speak) and use a .308 or 6.5 Creedmoor?

But far be it for me to tell another gun owner what they "need."

My understanding on why this round is a bigger deal is because it gives 6.5 performance (or nearly so) in an AR-15 package. That's not insigficant. It helped that Federal waited to release it until it had industry buy-in, allowing ammo to be available immediately, unlike the 6.5c.

I don't have a need for the round, but if owned fewer rifles, it would be something I would be looking into.
