Review: CMMG Mk4 DTR2 .224 Valkyrie AR-15 Rifle

The .224 Valkyrie is the new hot stuff round for 2018, particularly in the AR-15 world. AR-15 manufacturers are jumping over each other to try and get a rifle introduced with this new caliber, even in the bolt action world! The .224 Valkyrie offers 1,300+ yard performance, shooting faster and flatter than .223 or even .308, but it does so while fitting into a standard AR-15 STANAG Magazine. Incredible!

CMMG has jumped into the .224 Valkyrie world with the CMMG Mk4 DTR2 AR-15 in .224 Valkyrie.

Why .224 Valkyrie?

.224 Valkyrie offers AR-10 performance out of an AR-15 package. It stays supersonic out to 1,300 yards, resulting in an extremely flat trajectory for long distance shots compared to other MSR-15 cartridges. But despite that incredible performance, the .224 Valkyrie remains an incredibly soft shooting round, allowing for fast follow up shots.

Despite that performance, the cost per round is very economical for the range ammo, hunting ammo, and match ammo.
