Virgin. The way that crap Nosler made brass stretches it could be 37-40 after firing. It wouldn't surprise me at all.

Looks like Gewehr43 has no issues asking questions if its in his self interest ...

Lap on the other hand is the kind of guy that makes these boards special.

Wow dude...........

So Lap is special as he brought up his experiences (and suggestion that the 22 Nosler might be better than the 224V) and so I ask him about that.

And some how I'm selfish or something?
Because like you I'm interested in the 224V but realize that the 22 Nosler and 6.5 Grendel are in competition with it.

Meanwhile...........instead of attacking me........... Do you want some links to more tests of the 224V? or do you just want to pout about god-knows-what?

Gentlemen, Personally I think that when someone asks a specific question, it is best to either answer the question or wait for someone else to answer the question. I don't think it is mannerly to suggest that they find out for themselves or to look for an answer elsewhere. Just my two cents worth.

Well the problem with the OP's question is nobody has posted any first hand experience here yet. So nobody is answering his specific question. Even "Lap" who the OP appreciates posting- doesn't answer his specific question.

Meanwhile there are other posts/thread answering his specific question- tests etc of the 224V- out there.......... if the OP wants to look.

The 224V is a new cartridge and so like anything else.... someone is going to be the first............ why not him? I haven't had a chance to jump in myself yet. How is that different from a new bullet or sling? It isn't. He could get one, test it, post the results and is capable of showing a good test.

With both, I'm actually trying to get answers for the questions the OP has , which I have too. Which so far, noone else has answered.

Fair enough?

Steve, Sometimes there are misunderstanding that stem from the "tone" of the response.

Fair enough:

Yes......... if you want to call it "tone"............ok.

I'll say this again:
So the OP asks about experiences with the new 224V and NOONE here has any, none,nada, nothing. So I suggest looking elsewhere (Where I HAVE found test/results) and somehow by my tone........... I'm the bad guy?

Meanwhile......... the OP insults me (there is no "tone" about it) by saying:
".........Looks like Gewehr43 has no issues asking questions if its in his self interest ..."
But I'm the bad guy?

The OP outright insults members of AR15.com as well. Are there some "goobers" there? YES, like any forum. But there are also some good solid shooters that post there. They among other things shoot at LONG RANGE and have alot of experience in that area. If he were shift thru there, he might find what he's looking for.
But I'm a bad guy for bringing it up?

So here you go:

For what it's worth and for any and everybody to see:

"Lap" showed virgin 22 Nosler brass at 35.8gr of water.
I checked & found 6.5 Grendel brass at 34.14gr of water.
I checked and found 224Valk brass at 30.83gr of water.

6.5 Grendel brass: New AE 120gr OTM brass lot#V2K251.
224 Valkyrie brass: New Federal 90SMK brass lot#R2P285?

Both were "FC" marked, factory fresh ammunition.
Both had bullet pulled, powder dumped, checked empty and fill with H2O.
H2O was filled to the edge.
The empty cases weighed 10 times and the H2O filled were five times, then averaged.

Hope it helps anyone interested in the 224 Valkyrie capacity.
