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.

Solid performer

By Scott P. on Aug 07, 2023
Shoot real well out of my Thompson Center Encore .204. Can shoot a bunch without disrupting the checkbook to much on the cost

Perfect for my use

Hornady = Winner

These shot very well out of my 204 Ruger rifle. I am happy with the purchase.

Hornady 40 V-Max performs, and is available in time for p-dogs

By Dino C. on Sep 27, 2022
In 204 caliber, there are only a few available options before you go to custom bullets. Of the factory mass produced options, the Hornady 40 V-Max is always available when we need them. Bullets that perform are important, but if they don't come when you need them they are not. The Hornady 40 V-Max is the equal of the alternatives and is always made available when we need them. It is the double bonus, it performs and you can get them too. Certainly worth a try.

Hornady V max does it again!

I’ve used Hornady Vmax bullets in my 22-250 with excellent results. I decided to use V max in my .204 Ruger and got the same excellent results.

Have served me very well!

My go to long range .20 bullet

By S Peter P. on Oct 17, 2019
I have made shots on small rodents just short of 500 yards with this Hornady bullet. My only negative comment is that I loaded up a bunch of them that had less than desirable expansion but apparently that was limited to that lot. I keep buying them and now am also loading the 39 Speer TNT for closer range volume shooting.

Excellent as always.
