    .17 Fireball cases... or help with forming some!

    I need to retire my old .17 Fireball brass, so I'm looking for some new or once-fired cases - ideally a couple of hundred. (Oh, look! A purple unicorn!)

    Alternatively, if anyone has the necessary tools and know-how, and would be willing to help me form some cases, please get in touch!

    You can purchase formed .17 Fireball EX .221 Fireball, from Mr Norris @ Sandford.

    Many thanks... but I called him earlier today and it appears the last batch has run out and it may be "quite a while" before more is available.

    Ring Spud & invest in a set of dies?, I hear it's a two die operation & then trim & de burr.

    Another helpful suggestion... and perhaps I should have listed all my previous efforts in my initial post... but I headed up that avenue yesterday.

    Mark is most helpful, and I have no complaint about his prices, but I was hoping to find a less expensive solution, if possible.

    Hi Mark,

    Can you give me an idea of when the Fireball brass is due in, as I've got fewer than 50 rounds left, lots of bunnies, crows and foxes that need shooting, and only a handful of other rifles to do it with!

    Poor planning on my part I know, but until I made up my last batch of .17 Fireball reloads last week I hadn't realised how far gone my cases were!
