I was reading in American Rifleman that the Val is based on the 6.8 SPC cartridge and says the Val uses the 6.8 bolt and magazines. I recently scored a 6.8SPC rifle, mags and a bunch of ammo just because it was a good deal. I kinda already have a 20" rifle in that slot, the Grendel.
So all I need to do is change the barrel to convert what I have to .224 Valkerie? After I shoot up all the 6.8 ammo? I am undecided, I may leave it alone. Being bored, I am out of work on temp disability and idle hands are the BRDevil's workshop! Lol.
I might like the 6.8 and keep it.
