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.

These are tack drivers in my 223. Great product, fast & free shipping, with a good price. Need I say more?

Comparing to Berger

By Randy H. on Dec 09, 2022
I’ve been using 55 grain Berger varmint bullets with excellent results.
It’s getting a little expensive using on ground squirrels. Heard good things on Vmax bullets, so I’m going to give them a try. Thanks G&S for the fast shipping!

Hornady 55 grain V-Max's

By BRUCE J. on Oct 08, 2022
These are a very accurate bullet in my rifle. Using IMR 8208 XBR. They are super accurate and devastating on small varmints. I would recommend that if you want a bullet that shoots well order some of these from Grafs and take care of those varmints or shoot tight groups on paper targets. Bruce J. Colo.

Best priced varmint zapper out there.

By Sheldon C. on Apr 06, 2020
Between Graf's one price shipping and the speed of them getting it out the door, this is always great buy. I load these for several AR barrel lengths with 27.0gr of CFE223 and it holds tight and true.
