Federal took care of this round’s precision built casing, primer, and propellant, and they loaded it with Hornady’s V-MAX. The 53 grain projectile features a polymer tip that sits nestled within a hollow in its swaged lead core. It builds up impressive energy upon impact before connecting with the well’s bottom, at which point it commences deadly fragmentation that’s enough to send a smaller critter flying in several directions at once. The V-MAX’s streamlined profile and sharp meplat enhance its ballistic coefficient so that it can reliably make its way to smaller critters as well!
