.17 Caliber

Monday, August 13th, 2018

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.
