“Speed Kills!” Hornady’s press release tells us. Good thing puns only wound. “Varmint hunters can now reap the benefits of Hornady Superformance propellant technology in their favorite varmint cartridges. Superformance Varmint ammunition delivers muzzle velocity increases of 100 to 200 feet per second from EVERY gun.” It must be said: that’s a lot of guns. Including semi-automatics, BTW. “Accuracy, increased range, flatter trajectory, less wind drift and devastating terminal results.” What’s not to like? Other than, say, price. “Featuring the industry leading polymer tipped Hornady V-MAX bullet that delivers match accuracy and rapid fragmentation, Superformance Varmint ammunition from Hornady extends current varmint cartridge efficiency and performance.” Make the jump for the full menu . . .
