This is the page to follow the progress of our .17 Remington Fireball and .221 Remington Fireball projects. What are the Fireball Projects? Simply stated, we have four different rifles that have been re-barreled to the .17 Fireball and .221 Fireball chamberings.
- Howa 1500 Mini-Action – Re-Barreled to .17 Remington Fireball
- Howa 1500 Mini-Action – Re-Barreled to .17 Remington Fireball with a threaded barrel
- Howa 1500 Mini-Action – Re-barreled to .221 Remington Fireball
- Savage 110 – Custom .17 Remington Fireball by Shaw Custom Barrels with a threaded barrel
As we test these rifles, we will also discuss the project details and some of the steps we needed to take in order to allow them to function properly. We will also include complete accuracy testing with both factory ammunition (depending on availability) and handloaded ammunition.
These rifles will eventually be up for sale, so stay-tuned in to our progress!
