Load data for caliber ".17 Rem. Fireball"The .17 Rem. Fireball is a highly accurate and low recoil cartridge developed by Remington in the early 21st century. It is based on a necked-down .221 Fireball case and uses a bullet measuring just 17 caliber, making it an ideal choice for those seeking the accuracy of a centerfire rifle in the form of an affordable rimfire option.
The .17 Rem. Fireball's flat trajectory and excellent ballistics make it an excellent pick for small game hunting as well as target shooting at medium range. Its low recoil also makes it suitable for novice shooters or young children learning to shoot, while its high velocity ensures devastating performance when hunting varmints such as prairie dogs or groundhogs.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
