Hornady expands its series of ELD Match ammunition with the addition of a .224 Valkyrie load.

Available this summer, the 88 grain ELD Match bullet offers a velocity of 2,700 feet-per-second with a ballistic coefficient of .545 G1/.274 G7. Equipped with the company’s Heat Shield tip, the Match rifle ammunition uses AMP bullet jackets.

“We carefully select every component to ensure uniformity, then load to exacting specifications to provide pinpoint accuracy,” Hornady said in a statement. “Each cartridge is loaded with the new radically superior ELD Match bullet. Stringent quality control ensures proper bullet seating, consistent charges and pressures, optimal velocity, consistent overall length and repeatable accuracy.”

Served up in 20-round boxes, the .224 Valkyrie is expected to ship from Hornady sometime in June. No word yet on price.

In addition to the .224 Valkyrie Match load, Hornady also announced its ELD Match ammo is available for purchase in bulk quantities. Bulk quantities are now offered for the following: .22 Cal., 6mm, 6.5mm and .30 Cal.
