Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default .224 Valkyrie?

I've never heard of the .224 Valkyrie round but, it seems interesting.

This video was shot at my friends farm and my friend is one of the shooters in the video. I'll ask him more about the round the next time I see him. This is also the range I've shot at many times. This past year he's made a bunch of improvements to the backstops. One of these days, we'll get smart enough to put large tarps on the ground to catch all the brass.

I've been seeing that name come up a lot on gun.deals, the old Slickgun site. I'm still on the fence about my next AR pistol barrel. 300 blackout would be nice if I still had all my old reloading equipment. I went from AKM7.62x39 to AR 5.56x45 a few years ago.

Or....you could pick up a $15 brass catcher.?
Me? I'll stick with my 22-250. 50gr 4100 fps, and an established round.

Cerberus, I got my first CC permit back in 2004 after a neighbor broke in my house and threatened me about pressing charges. I went out and bought a Ruger KP345 and a Keltec P-32. I would practice down by the river and throw a old bed sheet on the ground to catch the cases. At one time I had about 700+ reloads in my gun/reloading room.

I bet its a real barrel burner. Some of these new long range PRS calibers only last 1000 to 1500 rounds per barrel. The best thing is to get that caliber in a rifle in which you can change the barrel out with only a few tools.
