The cartridge also has a relatively long neck, which is also an asset when using those long, streamlined bullets. To top it all off, the cartridge does all of those things while generating very little recoil.

Now if you’re into long range shooting and you want to also use that cartridge for a little hunting on the side, then the .224 Valkyrie makes a whole lot more sense.
