17 Caliber (.172) 20 Grain V-Max (Varmint Maximum) Packed Per 100 Hornady V-MAX bullets. Super accurate. Super deadly. The tack-driving accuracy of V-MAX comes from a unique combination of materials, construction and design. V-MAX combines a lightweight polymer tip with advanced internal construction. The result is a center of gravity that creates the level of stability imperative for long-range varmint shots. A very sharp tip creates an improved ballistic coefficient, while maintaining the optimum bearing surface needed for maximum stability. The result is superior performance at all ranges. The dramatic fragmentation of the V-MAX comes from a combination of the copper jacket, the special core design and the polymer tip. The copper jacket is designed to hold the bullet together and withstand the fast rotational speeds generated by today's varmint rifles. Upon impact, the tip and core go to work. The tip acts as a "wedge" and pushes backwards into the bullet core. The hollow cavity right behind the base of the tip allows the tip to build up kinetic energy before smashing into the largest part of the core. This ensures dramatic fragmentation - even in low-velocity, long-range shooting situations. Upon impact, the V-MAX tip acts as a wedge, driving backwards into the bullet core and causing dramatic fragmentary expansion--even at low velocities. The light weight of the polymer tip helps place the center of the bullet in the proper relationship to the center of gravity, resulting in optimum flight stability for greater accuracy. The core is swaged up and around the stem of the tip and features a hollow cavity underneath the bottom of the tip, allowing for explosive augmentation once impacted by the tip. The copper jacket is precision engineered to perform in today's fast twist varmint rifles as well as in slower calibers. The overall V-MAX bullet design combines aerodynamic advantages of the polymer tip with the secant ogive profile creating higher ballistic coefficients. The result is a flat-shooting bullet with better accuracy than comparable varmint bullets. The secant ogive profile, which was pioneered by Hornady for use in hunting bullets, results in low drag and flatter trajectory. The V-MAX design combines the most ballistically efficient profile with the greatest possible bearing surface for added stability. Boattail and flat base design both offer maximum stability. Note: These are component bullets, not loaded ammunition.
