Product Information

With its combination of proven materials, innovative design and streamlined profile, the Hornady® V-MAX® represents the pinnacle of what a specialized varmint bullet can achieve, offering straight-line trajectories, enhanced accuracy, dramatic expansion and explosive fragmentation at a wide range of distances and velocities.

The industry's leading varmint bullet with polymer tip and streamlined design results in flat trajectories. The concentricity of the match grade AMP® bullet jacket provides maximum accuracy at all ranges as well as explosive expansion, even at velocities as low as 1600 fps.

  • POLYMER TIP:  The secret to the explosive terminal performance of the V-Max® is a hollow cavity resting between the tip's shaft and the body of the bullet. Upon impact, the hard shaft builds up speed and energy before driving into the core, causing the entire package to rapidly expand to the point of violent fragmentation, even at low terminal velocities.
  • HIGHER BALLISTIC COEFFICIENT:  Hornady® combines the sharp, pointed polymer tip with the most aerodynamic profile for a high ballistic coefficient. The V-MAX® profile also provides the maximum bearing surface for added in-flight stability.
  • SWAGED LEAD CORE:  The swaging process allows precise formation of the core up and around the tip, with a cavity under the tip's stem. This allows the tip to build up energy before smashing into the core, causing dramatic fragmentation of the core and jacket.
  • PRECISE BOATTAIL & FLATBASE DESIGNS:  Utilizing the proper base design provides incredible in-flight stability for long-range shooting.

This is not loaded ammunition.

Great for 17 Fireball

By Cale R. on Jan 10, 2024
Excellent accuracy without really even trying. These shot sub MOA right away in my custom CZ 527. With minimal load development I found a combination that did 1/2 MOA. Will be testing on groundhogs this spring and I have no doubt it will do perform well.

Awesome bullet on ground squirrels!

I’ve had great results using Vmax in my 22-250. So it was a no brainer for my new 17 Hornet. Great results again! Thanks Grafs for the speedy shipping!

Works great on prairie dogs

Good bullet in the 17 Hornet. Plenty accurate and excellent terminal performance. Graf's have some of the best prices around. Using these now that I ran out of the Hornady "Z-max" (same bullet with yellow tip) that were less expensive at the time.
