Federal Premium adds to its popular American Eagle Rifle ammunition series, introducing new calibers and grain weights.

The ammo, geared towards high-volume shooters, already boasts an impressive list of calibers; however, Federal Premium continues to add to its arsenal. New for 2018, the company has introduced the all-new, Federal Premium-designed 75-grain FMJ .224 Valkyrie in addition to 120-grain BTHP 6.5 Creedmoor and 75-grain FMJ .223 Rem variants.

The company says the new offerings boast accurate bullets, reloadable brass and consistent primers which result in reliable feeding and extraction.

“American Eagle rifle ammunition offers consistent, accurate performance at a price that’s perfect for high-volume shooting,” Federal Premium said in a statement.

While 6.5 Creedmoor and .223 Rem. have become standard in the rifle industry, the .224 Valkyrie is the newest entry into the rifle ammunition arena. Touting long range accuracy on MSR platforms, the Valkyrie has positioned itself to compete with popular long range options like the Creedmoor.

The new American Eagle rifle calibers are currently shipping to distributors and dealers with the .223 Rem. and .224 Valkyrie priced under $15 and the 6.5 Creedmoor coming in at $26.
