Well I picked up from a forum member a bucket list chamber for me a 221 Fireball. My sellers health is not really great and he has had it for a long time and can't remember who off the forum he bought it from. Its a mutt, it fit great on a rougher condition HX prefix frame. I took the synthetic furniture off and put some older PW MC on it. I o ringed it, cleaned and blue loc tited the scope base. Looks like it went through some nice pains to make this work as a 221. I know quite a few years back there were a few of these floating around from some of our great members, heck I believe Tim even had one. If anybody sold a barrel on here, shoot me a PM and maybe it was yours and I can find some history on it. It appears a 22hornet in its previous life. Its a 22 in ejector which looks to be another caliber ejector. Here are some pics and some advice would be great with this caliber.

I bought one from Booyah ~10 years ago, it was pretty accurate for me with the one handload I shot in it, sold it to macomb-rpj a couple years ago.

Doubt you went wrong. Would be a nice all around rifle.

I'm officially jealous. Let me know if you need some dies. May have some lying around. Have brass too but was thinking of making into 300 blk, but would rather have correct headstamp. Honestly, i even think i have about 120rds.

A big improvement over the .22 Hornet IMO.

I appreciate the words of confidence. I think its has to ability to be a great rifle. Especially uses .224 bullets and all reloading data uses all the same powders i load for on 300BLK and the 357 maxi.

Hopefully it will be a shooter, I love oddball rounds and having something different than anyone else.
