One of the industry’s leading varmint bullets with a polymer tip and streamlined design results in ultra-flat trajectories. The industry-leading concentricity of the match grade jacket design provides maximum accuracy at all ranges as well as explosive expansion even at velocities as low as 1600 fps. Polymer Tip: The polymer tip increases the ballistic coefficient and also initiates dramatic expansion upon impact – even at velocities as low as 1600 fps. Higher Ballistic Coefficient: Hornady combines the sharp-pointed polymer tip with the most aerodynamic profile for a high ballistic coefficient. The V-MAX profile also provides the maximum bearing surface for added in-flight stability. Swaged lead Core: The swaging process allows for precise formation of the core up and around the tip with a cavity under the tip’s stem. This allows the tip to build up energy before smashing into the core causing dramatic fragmentation of the core and jacket. Precise Boattail & Flatbase Designs: Depending on the bullet V-MAX offers a variety of boat tail and flat base designs utilizing the proper base design to provide incredible in-flight stability for long-range shooting.
