    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.

    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.. :p

    XB-70 Valkyrie
    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.

    Van Horn was gunsmith Gil Van Horn's last name. Sometimes a little insight helps it all make sense..
