The Hornady A-Max offers an ultra-low drag tip for greater accuracy at longer distances. The secant ogive design provides the optimum bearing surface for stability in flight and the best ballistic coefficient possible. The improved tip shank offers the necessary mechanical support to withstand the extreme velocities of our 50 caliber match bullet, helping to support pinpoint accuracy. The angle and length of the boattail is unique to each caliber and weight of A-MAX bullet to maximize ballistic coefficient and accuracy. The jacket of the A-MAX bullet is drawn to the tightest tolerance and concentricity achievable.
