Larue came out for the first time at Big 3 East Media Event. Mark Larue was here presenting something brand spanking new. He was showing off his 11.5″ SURG rifle chambered in a new round developed by Federal. The .225 Valkyrie is a 90 gr projectile. The cartridge is a 6.8 necked down to 5.56 according to Mark. The round is stable out to 1,000 yards. Here are some photos of the round.

Interestingly, the .224 Valkyrie is similar looking to the 6.5 Grendel which you see below with the ballistic tip.
The SURG rifle with suppressor will retail for $1995.post was originally published on this site
