From African big game to the American Grizzly Bear, Hornady’s Dangerous Game ammunition provides the shooter an exceptional load with more energy transfer and lots of knockdown power. The DGS non-expanding bullet is recommended for thick-skinned game such as elephant, rhino and hippo. Its tough copper clad steel jacket is designed to provide maximum penetration from all angles on thick-skinned and heavy boned dangerous game animals. Powders are carefully matched to each load to ensure optimum pressure and velocity, and to regulate in double rifles. Like all Hornady ammunition, Dangerous Game ammunition uses the highest quality cases and primers available. Consistent components translate to consistent shooting in the field. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer-primed, reloadable brass cases.
The Hornady® DGS® (Dangerous Game Solid) 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 DGX® (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.
