17 Fireball and .221 Fireball Brass Now Available
Both .221 Fireball and 17 Fireball brass have been in short supply for quite some time. Remington is the only producer of Fireball brass, and with the popularity of the new 17 Fireball cartridge, most of the recent brass production went into Remington loaded ammo. Wildcatters have also created additional demand for Fireball brass to make into 20 Vartarg cases. The 20 Vartarg is an extremely efficient cartridge that can drive the accurate 32gr BlitzKing or 32gr V-Max at 3700+ FPS with just 18 to 20 grains of powder. You can form Vartarg cases either by necking-down .221 Fireball brass, or necking up the 17 Fireball cases.
