    Isn't the Remington 17 Fireball the same as the Mach IV? It's factory produced, maybe it would be easier to find.

    I think there is a slight difference in the mach4 and the fireball. Not sure if I can use 17 fireball brass if anyone can give me a detonate answer on the subject I would appreciate it. Thanks

    You can Fire a 17 Fireball case in a 17 Machball but not the other way round

    You may have it backwards. The Fireball case is 1.420" long and the MkIV is only 1.400".

    You can fire the FB case in the MKIV by simply trimming the case to the proper length and running it through the MKIV Die. You can fire the MKIV in the FB as is, or if necessary, run it through the FB sizing die.

    Of course with the Mach IV, being a wildcat round, you will run into all sorts of different chamber sizings depending on who made the reamer.
