221 Remington Fireball
Rifle Cartridge

Abbreviated Name:  221 Rem Fireball

 
 

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

Remington originally developed the 221 Fireball for use in their XP-100 handguns.  While it was developed for handgun use, the Fireball operates at rifle pressure levels. As such, small rifle primers should be used. The 221 Fireball is capable of very good accuracy and lethal performance on varmints at well over 200 yards, and is underrated as a rifle cartridge. It has become a favorite small varmint round among the Nosler staff.
