17 Remington Fireball ammunition is a centerfire cartridge designed in 2007 by Remington Arms Company. This cartridge is incredibly efficient and ballistically very impressive. The 17 Remington Fireball uses the .221 Remington Fireball as it’s parent case, necked down to the smaller 17 caliber round.
The 17 Remington Fireball is originally based on the wild cat 17 Mach 4, but produced wide scale by Remington to capitalize on the 17 Mach 4’s growing popularity. The 17 Remington Fireball proved to be more successful and more efficient than the earlier 17 Remington. The 17 Remington Fireball reaches the nearly the same velocity as the 17 Remington, but requires less powder. A smaller amount of powder results in several advantages, such as less fouling, less noise, less concussion and significantly less heat. This decreases wear and tear on the rifle, and provides a better cartridge for bulk shooters. The 17 Remington Fireball has a very mild recoil, a very high velocity, and has proven to be very accurate. The round excels at small game hunting including rabbits, as well as varmints like raccoon, and opossum, and is even capable of taking predators like coyotes.
