You might see it as a bit pricey at first glance. But can you really put a price on absolute domination of every category of performance in a given scenario? For varmints, this is a legendary load. Better accuracy, better tolerances, better quality control, better velocity, better brass and better at dropping in one shot at distance, the thing you were aiming at. Varminting, that’s a Hornady invention for the most part. And aren’t we thankful for that? Hornady bullets, Hornady marketing, Hornady performance. If you are dropping nuisance animals at range with high powered, small caliber projectiles like 223 Remington: Hornady is probably involved at some level.
The 55 grain VMAX in this Varmint Express cartridge moves out of the barrel with 1280 ft. lbs. of energy and at more than 3200 feet per second of muzzle velocity. It’s pure chaos downrange on the chaotic little critters you all love to target. From groundhogs to coyotes, the Varmint Express and notably the VMAX bullet in 55 grains across all loads is a favorite. Proven reliable, proven ballistically and proven fun, this is the varminting round of choice when every shot needs to go through the same hole or every shot needs to dispatch a target.
This .223 ammo is ideal for use with your AR-15 or any other .223 chambered firearm.
