The polymer tip increases the ballistic coefficient and also initiates
dramatic expansion upon impact – even at velocities as low as 1600 fps.
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.
The swaging process allows for 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
Utilizing the proper base design provides incredible in-flight stability for
