Default First .224 Bolt gun I've seen

I just saw this. Savage has chambered the .224 Valkyrie in their 110 line of bolt guns.

Frank Galli of Sniper's Hide has a custom built one that he's shot very long distance on youtube. Not a production one like the Savage though.

Interesting but if you are going to use a bolt gun why not get the Savage 22.250 in the 1-9" twist and shoot the 70 grain bullets 300 fps faster?

It won't be going faster than a 90 gr bullet out of a .224 forever. The speed advantage gets smaller with every yard.

22 250 is still faster with a 90 grainer. Savage should have made them with a faster twist rate.

The good thing about a Savage is that you can buy a barrel with any twist that you want.

Yeah, thats why I own a few. But they would sell more rifles if they went with a 1:8 or 1:7 twist. Most of the people wanting a Valkyrie want to shoot the heavies.

But I agree with you, id rather have a fast twist 22-250Ai or similar.

I looked for a different barrel for my Savage 99; I didn't see anything.

Guess I'm stuck with the stock 300 Sav barrel and twist

The Savage bolt actions have interchangeable barrels.

You apparently haven’t seen the latest YouTube experts. There’s a treasure trove of information. Apparently the 224 Valkyrie is the greatest cartridge ever developed. This comes hot on the heels of the 6.5 creedmor which until very recently was the greatest cartridge ever developed. Every serious shooter needs to dump all their 6.5 gear and jump on the 224 train.

So the question then is “bro, you’re a serious shooter, right?”

^^^ Right?

Meanwhile, the .22-250 is the 22 caliber cartridge designed by God himself about 80 years ago.

Reading threads about the merits of different calibers isn't just informative, it's also very entertaining.

I think the proliferation of cartridges is part of a conspiracy to sell more guns to people who already have everything.

I put a .223 Savage 12FLV in a chassis, and it groups better at 100 yards than my "good " rifles. Also does well at 600 yards with 69 grain FGMM. If this came in lefty, I'd be all over it.

After the way I shot my '06 today, I only wish I could purchase me some skill. I'm gonna have to spend some quality time tomorrow with the snap caps.

I have long thought a 99 rebarreled with a Varmint weight barrel in 22-250 would be interesting.

With a little help from the 250-3000, which is a fine old cartridge in it's own right.

Probably one of the greatest wildcat to production cartridges ever though, the 22-250.
