The Hornady V-MAX 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 and jacket. Proper bullet base design provides incredible in-flight stability for long-range shooting.

Versatile and affordable bullets
Posted by Scott on Aug 10th 2020
These are great bullets especially if you're rifled 1-in-9: high BC (G1: 0.290), under 60 gr., suitable for varmints, can be pushed to 3200 fps or better, and affordable enough for the range.
These are my go-to bullets for .223.
