Introduced in 1992 and was originally designed by Mike Hill. Dan Cooper (President of Cooper Arms) further refined the cartridge and chambering to put it into production in the Cooper Model 38 action. The .17 CCM is a necked down 22 CCM and is capable of propelling a 20 grain .172” dia. bullet at 2,900 fps with 373 ft. lbs. of energy. This is round was designed for varmint hunting has a flat trajectory out to 200 yards.

In 2006 rumors of the .17 Remington Fireball circulated within the industry and the introduction came in 2007. The offspring of the .221 Remington Fireball, this micro caliber offers a lot of bang for the buck. While slightly slower than the .17 Remington (4040 fps.), the Fireball is able to produce similar velocities with less powder, which reduces bore fouling. The effective range is 300-400 yards, but I have read post of shots out to 500 yards.
