This cartridge sports a 40 grain V-MAX, which is relatively light at 40 grains and extremely fast with a Mach 3+ muzzle velocity because of it. Hornady’s V-MAX is built like a Swiss watch – if that watch was designed to destroy itself instead of keeping time. The V-MAX’s polymer tip rests on the rim of its jacket and extends deep down into its core, but without touching it. When the tip jams inward during impact, it generates substantial energy before connecting with the core. At this point the V-MAX literally explodes in a display of violent fragmentation, absolutely undoing whatever varmint or predator it finds itself within.
The V-MAX is also built for accuracy. This round’s bullet features an ultra concentric AMP jacket and swaged lead core for superior rotational stability, as well as an aerodynamic jacket profile and sharp polymer tip. You’ll have little trouble telling a V-MAX where it needs to go to.
You couldn’t ask for a finer operation than Federal to get the best performance out of so potent a hunting bullet. Minnesota cops don’t just use Federal’s ammo while they’re on duty out of a sense of state pride! This round’s brass shell casing boasts precise dimensions to guarantee flawless feeding and extraction, and is also made to last to please the handloading crowd. This round’s non-corrosive primer prevents rust, and its clean burning propellant achieves consistent muzzle velocities without producing excessive thick residue.
