The Hornady DGS® bullets feature an advanced profile built of the toughest materials that penetrate through thick hide, dense muscle and hard bone — delivering maximum stopping power.

The business end of the DGS® bullet features a wide, flat nose that delivers maximum energy upon impact, while resisting bullet deformation and deflection. Incorporating a very hard high antimony lead core with a copper-clad steel jacket, this bullet maintains integrity and overall weight retention when driving through even the toughest hide and bone. Uniform in shape and size to the DGS® (Dangerous Game™ eXpanding) bullet, you can reliably and accurately shoot both from the same firearm with little to no shift in point of aim or impact.

Flat Nose

The flat nose reduces possible deflections and resists deformation to achieve straight, deep penetration. The DGS® provides the perfect follow-up bullet when hunting dangerous game.


DGS® and DGX® Uniformity
Each calibre utilises the same profile for both the DGS® and DGX® bullets, offering the ultimate uniformity, which is ideal when shooting both bullet types through the same firearm.


Copper Clad Steel Jacket
The heavy copper clad steel jacket and high antimony lead core penetrate deeply through hide, muscle and bone.
