Hornady’s Superformance Varmint line of ammunition promises to deliver muzzle velocity increases of 100 to 200 fps from every rifle to provide better accuracy, increased range, a flatter trajectory, and less wind drift with every shot.

This 223 Rem cartridge features a 53 grain V-MAX projectile. The bullet’s polymer tip not only streamlines its shape for a high ballistic coefficient and added in-flight stability, but also initiates rapid fragmentation upon impact when it is driven down into its hollow cavity. This bullet further features a swaged lead core which allows for precise formation up to and around its tip, letting the tip build up greater energy during impact for lightning fast expansion.

This bullet’s boat tail design reduces its base drag, which gives it a substantially higher ballistic coefficient than a comparable flat base bullet. This makes it less sensitive to crosswinds, gives it a flatter trajectory, and helps to deliver more energy downrange.

This round also offers a non-corrosive Boxer primer and factory fresh brass casing made according to strict tolerances. They make this round ideal for handloading, so even one box of these cartridges could spell doom for dozens of hapless varmints.
