I had a Honda Valkyrie and I wish I had it back!! Sold it in a weak moment.
Naming pays off. I guess. Hyundai
I shot next to one this week, that thing was rocking. I still prefer my .223 MPA trainer.
I bet the 223 Ackley will give the same performance as the Valkyrie at NATO pressures.
With a mag-fed 90gn bullet?
If it gets all the 6.5 guys to quit asking why I don't own a 6.5 variant yet, it's just fine with me..
The world's fastest bomber capable of Mach 3
It seems to me that Valkyrie is an appropriate name for a high performance cartridge.
I think it is one of the better wildcat names out there.
don't forget the insects. 218 bee, 219 zipper, 22 hornet. they don't even sound lethal. :0
I did have a 218 bee - Kimber and wish I had it back.
Being a fan of the stories from Norse mythology I really like the name. Makes me think of scantily clad blonds with swords for some reason.
Yes, probably with beards and lots of body hair too, likely!
How do you pronounce it?
Van Horn was gunsmith Gil Van Horn's last name. Sometimes a little insight helps it all make sense..
Im sure many of them are... just throwing out examples.
I think it's a cool name.
Phil seems to like it!
I really don`t care what they call a particular cartridge, as long as it performs as advertised and does the job it`s intended to......the rest is just marketing.
Regarding the Valkyrie name---seems it was used in Precision Shooting many years ago(early 90's??), in naming another 223 cartridge, shooting mostly the lighter bullets. I am thinking the writer was from Idaho and may even frequent this forum, from time to time.
So, this 'new designation', may not be so new.
Anyone recall this. I will need to dig up my PS magazines and check.
I just happened by this.
Bingo. Beat me to it.
Separate names with a comma.
