Wow, I had a tough time with the 88gr elds. All my rifles seem to like non-eld bullets better.

Hello Everyone,
I have been shooting long for a few years thanks to my brother who got me hooked. I am by no means an expert but really enjoy the challenge making it all work. I have been wanting to build an AR15 and once I started reading about the 224 Valkyrie I decided that was the caliber I wanted go with. I just finished the build, broke in the barrel and have started the load development. I am joining the forum to find out what is working for other shooters and sharing what I have done. Hopefully my information helps others avoid issues I have run into as well.
Awesome article thanks!  Cant wait to see the 83gr berger.

I also have an athlon ares and it's my new fav.  Replaced a veracity.  Good prices on amazon and elsewhere.  Check out gavintoobe's new athlon review.  They seemed to have fixed the mushy turrets on the new models.
224 Valkyrie Troubleshooting / Is it possible?
« Last post by Flygrimm on January 12, 2019, 03:36:04 PM »
Let me first state that I have not assembled my rifle yet but looking ahead.   As stated in another thread my barrel has what appears to be about average jump to the lands.  If loaded to 2.26” the jump for the 90 SMK is .058” and .096” for the 88 ELD-M.

If I can’t get it to shoot well is it possible to have the barrel re-chambered?  I suspect that would entail removing the barrel extension, threading the barrel so the extension can go precisely one more turn, recut the chamber and reinstall the extension. I expect the difficult part would be getting the extension threaded on exactly another 360 degrees.  The other issue would be what reamer to use.  There’s been a lot of talk about bad reamers, I wouldn’t want to reuse one of those.

You’re thoughts.
