This 243 Win round is loaded with Hornady’s world-famous V-MAX projectile. Here is an accurate 87 grain bullet, with a sharp tip to break the air before it, a sleek profile to keep that tip always pointed toward its target, and a perfectly distributed swaged lead core. So aerodynamic a bullet achieves an even 0.400 ballistic coefficient – enough to keep its velocity faster than 2,100 fps at 500 yards.
What is all that accuracy for? Why, for varmint hunting, of course! The V-MAX’s polymer tip rests on the rim of the jacket and extends into a precision formed hollow within the core. It generates substantial energy beginning on impact, which it soon transfers to the base of the nose cavity. The result is grenade-like terminal fragmentation, even at lower velocities. Varmint go poof!
Hornady’s Nebraskan-made ammunition always features fine brass, non-corrosive primers and clean burning propellant. It’s varmint hunting with a 243 at its best!
