Hornady designed the V-MAX bullet for reliable expansion in thin-skinned game like varmints or younger hogs. This performance is achieved via a strong copper jacket, a hollow cavity up front, and a polymer tip which tapers to the bullet's shape. While in flight, the polymer point acts as a drag-resistant windshield and then initiates expansion upon impact. The bullet's jacket resists separation from the lead core and preserves momentum necessary to reach vital organs. Hornady is a highly respected ammunition company that backs their products with quality control methods that have undergone constant refinement since 1949.
