Got a call from TinMan hisself a while ago. He knows I've been curious about the .224 Valkyrie and he tipped me off that Palmetto State Armory had an 18" complete upper on clearance for $299. It and 100 rds of cheap ammo are on the way. Midway USA also got an order for 2 magazines, 200 pieces of brass, and a 2-die set. A call to Dillon revealed I already have the correct shell plate, powder funnel, and buttons. I have a variety of bullets suitable for the .224V and probably have a powder or two that will work. The wait is on!
