224 Valkyrie – Choosing some Long Range Loads

In this video I discuss the loads that I am choosing for taking the 224 Valkyrie out to longer ranges.  I have been doing load development at 100 yards and I have found some consistent, repeatable loads that are grouping for me, and giving me the ballistics that I am looking for.  I will go through these loads, and show some targets that I have shot with them.
