General Discussion / Project Appleseed

This is a growing event that is nationally recognized.  If you haven't taken the course and want tips and tricks on how to become a better rifleman this is a great course and a lot of fun.  It tests your ability to shoot without a rest in somewhat real world conditions.  If you are a hunter, this class is a great way to improve your overall shooting ability and the tips and tricks they teach are useful in the field.

We are not affiliated with this project in any way.  We just believe its a fun course to test ones skills and learn something new.

224 Valkyrie Reloading and Ammunition / Re: 75gr ELD loads.
« on: August 20, 2018, 12:36:20 PM »
I look for a few things.

1. Select a single powder, start 1-2 grains below max charge listed and work up loads to see where the accuracy nodes are.
2. See how fast I can get the projectile to go before I start seeing pressure signs.
3. Chrono loads right where pressure signs start so I have a good idea of the potential overall speed of that particular powder.  Also chrono the accuracy nodes.

These three things usually help me find which powder is the fastest and which accuracy nodes/speeds my particular barrel likes for that weight projectile.

I can then switch powders and load closer to the accuracy node I found using a chrono that I noted in my first powder to help reduce reloading time.

IE: Say my gun likes 2800, 2900 and 2950.  That tells me I can look online or in a book for the charge weights for other powders that may be in that same speed.  This has helped me reduce wasting powder to find what my barrel may like in another powder.

This is just what has worked for me.  I have tried many other methods over the years, this is just what seems to work for me now.

224 Valkyrie General Discussion / Re: Bolt rifle vs AR
« on: July 19, 2018, 05:25:21 PM »
We appreciate your input, however we think there are some myths going around about this caliber not being accurate at long distance.  There are multiple accounts online, either via posts or youtube videos showing 1000 yard sub MOA accuracy.  Below are just a few videos showing 1000 yard accuracy with an AR.  These videos are using different AR manufacturer rifles as well. 

The other thing about this caliber, it stays supersonic out to 1300yards in the AR-15 platform.  1000 yards is not an easy shot without a good shooter and good optics and the ability to calculate wind drift.  If people think they are going to buy this caliber and they are going to become a 1000 yard shooter over night, we think they have unrealistic expectations.

I know a few members here are on sanctioned long distance shooter teams, It would be of more interest to obtain their "experience" at long range distances with this caliber in the AR-15 platform rather than hearsay.  I do not want to call anyone out, but they know who they are. :)


Here are a few videos online doing a quick search showing 1000 yard accuracy out of the AR platform.  2 out of those 3 videos are using factory ammunition.

Go to 16:00
   

Go to 5:45
 

Go to 16:20, this is at 1300yards with some wind.


Again, we appreciate the contribution on this site but it seems there is some false information floating around.

the bottom line, they are not the same, data not interchangable.

most post you have no clue what the guy is shooting.

Ask and you shall receive.

Constructor has been a great help to the community here.  He brings years of experience and has continually helped the community with the growing pains of the 224 Valkyrie.  We are lucky to have someone as knowledgeable and helpful!  We just wanted to thank him!

Please try uploading pictures again.  We took the picture restrictions off.  Image limits were set initially as we get charged for space.  However, space at this time is not an issue so we have removed the quotas/limits.  ;)
