The 17 fireball is a wildcat gone main stream on us. The very popular 17Mk IV was a necked down version of the 221 Fireball. I don't have any sub-calibers yet but I will have a 17 cal one day. The 17 fireball was adopted by remington in 2007. The original wildcat has been around since 1962 with a strong following in the sub-caliber group of varmint hunters.
Seems like one of those calibers that someday will only really be able to be found if you reload, like some of the other "novelty" calibers in the past I suppose. I only call them novelty calibers because they never really caught on.
