WESTFIELD, Massachusetts-(Ammoland.com)- Savage is pleased to introduce a modern sporting rifle built to squeeze the maximum performance from the hottest new round in long-range shooting. The new Savage MSR 15 Valkyrie is chambered for Federal Premium Ammunition’s 224 Valkyrie. Together, rifle and cartridge take the popular MSR 15 platform to unheard of heights in long-range precision and ballistic performance. Savage will showcase the new 224 Valkyrie MSR at the 2018 SHOT Show January 23-26 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 224 Valkyrie produces flat trajectories, supersonic velocities up to 1,300 yards downrange and match-grade accuracy. Plus, it produces only half the recoil of larger cartridges needed to achieve comparable trajectories.

The competition-ready MSR 15 Valkyrie gets the most from the new cartridge’s unprecedented capabilities with an upgraded 18-inch barrel with 5R rifling and a crisp two-stage trigger. Its Elite Series Cerakote finish forms a tough, 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.

Another thing people from them states cannot even buy that gun,can they? I just think,maybe I am wrong,but why stay in a state that taxes you till hurts,doesn’t care about your product.People can’t even buy some of your products.They make it as hard as humanly possible for you to even own a gun. I myself would rather be in a state that is going to love my company an product.just fuel for thought

No problem with their products,I have a few of them myself an always been great product.Yea gun companies have been making them in my,ct,mass for years.That was before they became communist states.People from them states should learn their history.My thing is why stay in a state that hates what you make,does everything possible to make it harder on the gun owners who live there.The fruits that run them governments could care less about gun owners,but they will take tax money to use against you.Rem,Henry saw the light

Mass., Ct., and NY have been producing the highest quality firearms since the revolutionary war. You’re wrong in blaming the manufacturer for recent political decisions that you even state have hurt them. I can’t see your rationale in boycotting them.

I can’t believe Savage Arms is still located in the communist state of Massachusetts.They pay high taxes and it goes to a communist government.What is wrong with that picture?They need to move to a firearm friendly state,not be in a state that makes it ruff on your product.Don’t think I’ll be buying any more savage products

Try hiring a reliable skilled labor force in the Carolinas or Georgia, or Alabama. Won’t happen. Yankees are notoriously motivated skilled smart bunch. Plus, I don’t live there, never did. I worked for a company from CT, but never was out there for more than a couple days sometimes. New England people are very hardworking dedicated people mostly.

I think Savage is a good company and always has but in the last 7 to 10 years they have stepped it up a couple of notches! I can’t think of a stinker that I’ve ever had of there’s. Keep up the GOOD WORK Savage! I can’t wait to see how this comes out in the wash!
