Join The VHA (varmint hunters association). They have the best long range rifle shooting and reloading magazine I have ever read... You will learn more about taking that fireball to ranges way past 250yards then you ever though existed..Go over to the predator Masters.com you can ask all you want it is a good site for our pred and varmit hunting.
I have tons of experience with the 17 remington and love it. The fireball is supposed to be the round that fixes some of the problems with shooting mass amounts of ammo out of the 17 remington. Good Luck with your new toy!! [up]
