Redding to Produce 17 FireBall Dies

We spoke to Redding Reloading, and Kurt Nelson confirmed that Redding will be producing sizing and seating dies for Remington’s new 17 FireBall cartridge. Kurt advised that these dies will not be backward-compatible with the 17 Mach 4: “The headspace and the shoulder/neck geometry are different–plus there are variations of the 17 Mach 4 out there.” Redding hopes to have 17 FireBall dies to market in six weeks.
