That little round is interesting...

I am debating getting a bolt gun in 224v

The thought had crossed my mind as well. A 90 or 95 gr SMK seated out long running out of a 24” barrel sounds FUN.

I know MPA has released one with a Curtis Action in a chassis. What other actions could be built off? Donor action from Rem 700 SPC 6.8 bolt gun? Can a 223 Tikka bolt face be opened up?

If you're looking for a hot rod 22, why wouldn't you just get a 22 Creedmoor or fast-twist .22-250, particularly if you are loading for it? For a bolt gun I don't see any advantage over these two, or even a .223 AI.

It's more for people who want long range in the AR15 platform.

Would want to see reloading data first...but a couple of ideas

1) smaller frame then creed
2) more readily available supplies
3) similiar ballistics but less powder

Lose a point for being “latest and greatest”

If I wanted o wrangle performance out of the 22 then creed or 22-250 would be more suited. If I wanted a balanced gun that can go some distance easily the 224v fits the bill

Buzz has Valkyrie fever. It's just a matter of time before he builds one.
