The Hornady V-MAX bullet has an aerodynamic polymer tip that provides reliable feeding as well as an aerodynamic profile that enhances accuracy. Upon contact with the animal, the tip crushes into the bullet's tapered jacket and lead core and produces rapid expansion. This fast effect makes the V-MAX bullet most effective against small targets.
