The bullet resists drag and yields excellent precision due to a boat tail rear and a polymer tip which guards its hollow cavity. Upon impact, the red tip is driven back into the cavity in order to initiate massive, controlled expansion. This guarantees devastating energy transfer into a target for humanely taking squirrels, rabbits, armadillos, and other small game. The V-MAX design also guards lead from hot gases and keeps your favorite rimfire rifle clean and functional for a longer amount of time.
