17 Remington Fireball
The popularity of the .17" caliber has been on the increase for some time and started with the .17 Remington, which was introduced
in 1971 by necking down the 223 Remington from .22" caliber to .17" caliber.
Remington introduced the .17 Remington Fireball in 2007 by necking down the .221 Fireball to accept .17" projectiles.
The .221 Fireball was created in 1961 by shortening the .222 Remington the was created in 1950.
With velocities to over 4,000 feet per seconds with a 20 grain projectile, this is a great varmint and small game cartridge.
