Savage has introduced the MSR 15 Valkyrie chambered in the new 224 Valkyrie—which makes perfect sense considering the cartridge was pioneered by Federal Premium Ammunition, a company that also falls under the Vista Outdoor brand.

American Rifleman will report more on the new rifle and cartridge in the coming months, but in the meantime, here are the highlights. The MSR 15 Valkryie rifle is a competition-ready rifle that gets the most from the cartridge’s capabilities with an upgraded 18" barrel with 5R rifling and a crisp two-stage trigger. Its Elite Series Cerakote finish forms a  protective layer on the upper and lower, and its adjustable mid-length gas system can be customized to specific ammunition for the most reliable cycling. The full list of features includes:

• MSR 15 Recon platform built around the new 224 Valkyrie
• Elite Series Cerakote upper and lower
• Two-stage trigger
• Hogue pistol grip
• UBR Gen 2 buttstock
• Forward assist
• Muzzle brake with 1/2x28, Class 3 barrel thread
• Adjustable gas block
• 18" barrel with 5R rifling
• Mid-length gas system
