The 17 Remington

The 17 Remington

Madison, NC – New for 2008, Remington has expanded the 17 Remington Fireball lineup to include a UMC brand 25 grain JHP in 50 round bulk packaging. This new offering provides the hunter and shooter with an economical, heavier-grain option for volume shooting while adding increased penetration on larger predators like fox, coyote and bobcat.

The 17 Remington Fireball, based on the classic 221 Remington Fireball case, is an extremely well balanced cartridge that provides laser-flat trajectory, with match grade accuracy, all in a compact package that does not require excessive maintenance and won’t burn out barrels. When loaded with Remington’s super accurate 20 gr AccuTip-V bullet, the 17 Remington Fireball has a blistering muzzle velocity of 4000fps, rivaling the velocity and trajectory of the legendary 22-250 Remington out to 300 yards. That’s awesome performance from a cartridge that uses 50% less powder and generates a whopping 86% less recoil than the 22-250. You’ll never lose sight of your target when firing the 17 Remington Fireball, even with rifles scoped with today’s high-power optics.

Whether you’re pursuing prairie dogs, ground hogs, coyotes, or targets, the 17 Remington Fireball puts the fun back into centerfire rifle shooting.
