    Not yet. Been waiting for someone to offer an affordable upper or the bolt and barrel, at least. Looks like there are several now hitting the market. Palmetto State Armory has complete uppers for around $500. No idea if they're any good, though.

    Thats sort of the problem I don't want to spendv500 to be a Beta tester. In time we will know. I am very interested in this cartridge.

    Same boat here, was actually just about to post the same thing. Something about a PSA upper and shooting a caliper thats suppose to be good to 1300 yards does not seem to go hand and hand in my mind.
    Hell is other people

    Iíve been reading about some issues with it stabilizing the heavier bullets. Which is what it was designed for. Iím holding off. Hell im just now getting on the 6.5 creedmore wagon

    Most barrels available are 1 in 7 twist. Criterion says they will have other twist rates later this year. I'm looking for something in the 6 or 6.5 range. While I'm waiting I'm getting the rest of the parts for my build stocked up.

    I was concerned when I started seeing all the 1-7 and 1-8 .224 valk barrels. I figured there might be some issue with 90gr bullets at the velocities the valkyrie will push them at. I heard White Oak will be offering more twist rates than the 1-7, 1-8 and 1-12 they currently offer. I was initially very interested in the 100gr Fusion Federal advertised at first and then learned it was axed and turned into a 90gr fusion instead because of issues with the 100gr. Still don't know if I want to build one or not. The cartridge will perform I don't doubt it but with the 100gr load out and my limited range distance I don't think I'll be able to use all it has to offer. Can probably spend the 2 grand plus glass somewhere more practical.

    Yes, but you have to use 6.8 SPC mags.
