    I have a CZ 527 chambered in 221 Fireball & have a chance to obtain a takeoff barrel chambered for 17 Remington. Can the 17 Remington barrel be rechambered for the 17 Fireball bullet?

    Your going to have to set that barrel back then rechamber, I don't think you will have enough shank to thread for the action since you have to cut to the neck. Me I would look for a 20cal barrel.

    Certainly nothing wrong with the 221, it's a great cartridge! I was just curious about the barrel change. Boxbirder gave me the answer that I needed. That was exactly what I thought.

    I'm recovering from rotator cuff surgery, I'm bored as hell & looking for things to research!

    Get into the sub cals. I posted a great site for sub cals. I have slowly been rebarreling all my 22 cals for the 20's and to me there is nothing like a wildcat. I spend all winter loading for my yearly Pdog shooting trip.
