The 221 Remington Fireball is a centerfire pistol round designed by Remington Arms. Techincally, 221 Rem Fireball is a pistol round but it shares more in common with a rifle round in terms of design. In fact the only reason it could really be considered a pistol round is because it was designed for an experimental single shot pistol. In a completely predictable turn of events the round was later chambered in Remington rifles.
Technically, the 221 Fireball has the fastest velocity of any commercial made pistol cartridge. The 221 can propel a 45 grain projectile at a velocity of over 3,000 feet per second. The round also has a relatively low recoil when fired from both a rifle or a single shot pistol. Check out the 221 Remington ammo we have in-stock and for sale listed below:
