Paddy sent me this pic from SHOT.

Looks like large primer to me.

I don't mind RCBS Dave.

For some reason, i've always had a plethora of stuck cases, and dents , even with the breather hole Vince.

Managed to stick 25 rounds down it last weekend.

After the barrel had broke in, the groups started shrinking. This one was half way up a load range, and produced 3150 fps with an ES of 10.

All loads, right up to .1 over max gave no problems at all with extraction. Recoil felt less than a .223, and these speeds were with a 70 grain Nosler RDF.

Having done all that brass prep to the cases, I didn't expect them to be stunning whilst fire forming, but I would live with regular .4" groups out of an AR....especially at those speeds.

I feel better is yet to come on the 2nd firing. Hopefully, brass won't be too long now.

I had to make it Vince, from 6.8SPC and a modified die.

I think the first place it will appear, will be Brownells.

I tried to get some info on the Valkyrie at IWA but - surprise, surprise - no one has heard of it!

looks interesting - barrel length/MV relationship a lot more linear than usual

Would 224 valkyrie in an AR be legal in a CSR match or must it be 5.56/223 rem?

Thanks

It would be legal in Practical Optic class, but not in Service Optic. Remember that the maximum permitted MV on MOD gallery ranges is 1000m/s (3280 fps), so be careful not to exceed this if using lighter bullets.
