i have a 21in. .22k-hornet contender carbine. and i have a remington 722 in .222 rem.
dont know if i need a .221 FB. but i want one?!
is it an easy cartrige to reload for? whats the good and the bad?
thanks for any opinions guys.
The fireball is an easy cartridge to load for. You can get around 2600-2700 fps from a 10" barrel and 50 gr bullets and quite a bit more with lighter ones. In a carbine length barrell it doesn't really give up all that much to the .223 and powder charges are low. It's a very strong case with good case life, and cases are readily available in bulk from Midway. Go for it!
