For size comparison.  
Due to the demand for varmint hunting and silhouette shooting, the .221 Remington
Fireball cartridge was introduced by Remington in 1963 for the (then new)
Remington XP-100 Pistol (now obsolete firearm).
The cartridge is based on a shortened 222 Remington cartridge with a .22 caliber
projectile, velocity of (up to) 2650 Feet per Second and
(up to) 765 Foot Pounds per square inch of energy, "that is over the 357 Magnum".
Some also consider this a rifle cartridge.
