- Q & A
This round’s 55 grain tack driver features a swaged lead core, which was formed under intense pressure to ensure consistent shape and weight distribution, as well as Hornady’s own Advanced Manufacturing Process jacket which exhibits virtually zero errors in concentricity. The V-MAX’s flat base gives propellant gasses a nice and even surface to push against, and its polymer tip streamlines its overall profile to provide an even flatter trajectory.
The 0.255 G1 BC V-MAX will retain a velocity of at least 1,600 fps until approximately 499 yards (assuming you’ve got a 24” barrel). If it hits a varmint at any point before that distance, the V-MAX will unleash ruinous explosive fragmentation just after impact. It does this thanks to its polymer tip, which builds up momentum as it slides down through its core’s nose cavity before finally slamming into the base. Hornady’s premium small game hunting bullet is seated in a reloadable brass case, with a clean-burning powder charge and noncorrosive Boxer primer to tend to reliable ignition.
