Hornady Projectiles for Performance
The Hornady® V-MAX® represents the pinnacle of what a specialized varmint bullet can achieve, offering straight-line trajectories, enhanced accuracy, dramatic expansion, and explosive fragmentation at a wide range of distances and velocities, thanks to its combination of proven materials, innovative design, and streamlined profile.
Flat trajectories are achieved by using the industry's leading varmint bullet, which has a polymer tip and a streamlined shape. The match grade AMP® bullet jacket's concentricity ensures optimal accuracy at all ranges, as well as explosive expansion, even at speeds as low as 1600 fps.
A hollow cavity resting between the tip's shaft and the body of the bullet is the key to the V-Maxexplosive ®'s terminal performance. Even at modest terminal velocities, the hard shaft builds up speed and energy before crashing into the core, causing the entire package to rapidly expand to the point of dramatic disintegration.
For a high ballistic coefficient, Hornady® blends a sharp, pointed polymer tip with the most aerodynamic profile. In addition, the V-MAX® profile provides the most bearing area for increased in-flight stability.
