Hornady’s V-MAX is the perfect bullet for situations where there are varmints – but you wouldn’t like for there to be varmints. The same terminal performance that suits it so well for erasing pest creatures is also what makes the V-MAX a bullet we would count on for self defense!
The V-MAX is created in such a way that makes it self-destruct immediately following impact. The bullet’s polymer tip sits on the rim of its jacket. The tip’s long base reaches deep down into a precision-formed cavity within the V-MAX’s swaged lead core – stopping just short of touching at the bottom. When impact pushes the V-MAX’s tip inward, it generates extreme energy until it connects and – BAZOOM! Total eruption of the core and its jacket alike!
The streamlined V-MAX carries a high ballistic coefficient. This round’s 55 grain bullet has a sharp, centered meplat, aerodynamic profile, concentric copper alloy jacket, and base that is shielded against heat that could deform it. You’ll notice the V-MAX’s flat trajectory as well as the staggering energy with which it explodes into bits vary far downrange.
