The 5.45x39mm was invented in 1974 and was used by the Russian military more and more, until it nearly replaced the 7.62x39mm, which had been their service round for so long. With this new, lighter cartridge with less recoil, Russia now has a round that improves ammunition carrying capacity and automatic rifle accuracy, on par with the United State's 5.56mm.
In the aftermath of World War Two, Hornady was founded and filled the need for accurate, reliable ammunition in a time where neither was easy to find. Since then, Hornady has gone on to create some of the best rounds of our age, including the V-Max. Although originally designed for varmint hunting, the V-Max has gone on to be used for self defense and larger game hunting, showing just how good this versatile, polymer tipped round is. With its heightened accuracy and fantastic expansion, even at low velocities, this round is ideal for many purposes. Whatever your plans for these rounds are, these reloadable, 60 grain, V-Max rounds will get the job done.
