Hornady Varmint Express Ammunition 17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire (HMR) 17 Grain V-MAX
From prairie dogs to coyote and fox, the Hornady Rimfire line of ammunition offers varmint hunters high speed rimfire cartridges. Loaded with the V-MAX® bullet, these loads deliver tack-driving accuracy and dramatic expansion on impact.
The ideal combination of accuracy, expansion and fragmentation.
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 Boat-Tail and Flat-Base Designs
Utilising the proper base design provides incredible in-flight stability for long-range shooting.
