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.
