22 Cal .224 53 GR V-MAX®

22 Cal .224 53 GR V-MAX®

The industry's leading varmint bullet with polymer tip and streamlined design results in ultra flat trajectories. The industry-leading concentricity of the match grade jacket design provides maximum accuracy at all ranges as well as explosive expansion, even at velocities as low as 1600 fps.

V-MAX® bullets are also available in factory-loaded Varmint Express® and Superformance® Varmint ammo.


  1. Polymer Tip
    The polymer tip increases the ballistic coefficient and also initiates dramatic expansion upon impact – even at velocities as low as 1600 fps.
  2. 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.
  3. Swaged lead Core
    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.
  4. Precise Boattail & Flatbase Designs
    Depending on the bullet, V-MAX offers a variety of boat tail and flat base designs, utilizing the proper base design to provide incredible in-flight stability for long-range shooting.
