Scott probably has. I know wade stuteville has chambered several. It's not a huge deal though. If they have chambered a 6.5 saum they've basically done a prc. There isn't much difference.

What are you thinking Buzz? I've loaded and shot some of the PRC. It's a great little hot rod round. I'll be building a 6.5 GAP 4S here shortly.

Tell me more about this build. The 6.5SAUM has my attention. I want a hard hitting round in a short action (Savage)

It's simple really. A Tikka T3 rechambered with a custom 6.5mm Bartlein barrel pushing a 147 ELD-M about 3100-3200 fps! It's essentially a necked down 7 SAUM to 6.5mm. It holds about 65 grains of powder, and pushes a 140-147 grain at a good clip. It fits in a short action, but this will be on a Tikka, which are all long actions. I have a link HERE about it.

I used a 6.5 SAUM with the 135 Berger quite a bit this last fall and itís a solid performer for sure.

I don't know why are so against the new BENCHMARK for long range precision short action bolt guns. You need to get educated and keep up with new technology.

https://www.outdoorhub.com/reviews/2018/01/04/first-look-field-test-flight-224-valkyrie/


Q: Is the 224 a true 1,000-yard round?

A: Yes, the 224 Valkyrie will be the new benchmark for people looking to shoot at longer ranges with their AR platform rifles, and precision short-action bolt guns alike. To say the 224 Valkyrie is fast, even at long ranges, is an understatement. Testing conducted by Federal Premium engineers confirms its high-speed capabilities. For example, the 224 Valkyrie 90-grain Gold Medal Sierra MatchKing leaves the muzzle at 2,700 fps; it maintains a blistering 1,950 fps pace at 500 yards, and 1,268 fps when crossing the 1,000-yard line. In fact, it remains supersonic (1,125 fps) out to 1,300 yards.

Scott, I think the 22-250, 22 Creedmoor, 22-243 or 224TTH with 1:7 twist barrels will shoot the 90gr 22 cal pills several hundred fps faster than the Valkyrie.

Right.

Explained it before. Guess I have to again. It's cool in an AR-15. 6.5 Grendel will do more. In a bolt action, it could only sit on the sidelines and suck it's thumb, watching what a properly loaded .223 A.I. and a .22-250 can do. I have one of each.

As Kevin said, throw the .22 Creedmoor in, and the .224 Valkyrie isn't anything more than the new girl in school guys are panting over, that's a 7, while the 10 you've known for years is still sitting right there.

Iím trolling you buddy. Anything I want to do with a 22 centerfire can be done with 5.56 NATO that I already own in abundance. I have less than zero interest in a Valkyrie. I just think the hype machine is funny. cheers
