Hornady Dangerous Game Bonded Series ammunition is designed to deliver hard-hitting accuracy when hunting large and dangerous games on safari. The Hornady Dangerous Game eXpanding Bonded Bullet is used in this cartridge.
The DGX Bonded has the same profile as the standard DGX but expands to 1.5x to 2x the bullet diameter. A copper-clad steel jacket is bonded to a lead core in the bonded projectiles to provide controlled expansion, deep penetration, and high weight retention. The bonding process prevents separation from high-energy impacts on tough materials such as bone, ensuring that the projectile remains intact. Powder and primers are carefully chosen to give you the most consistent results shot after shot. Make sure you give yourself your all.
