The DGX® Bonded (Dangerous Game eXpanding) bullet features a copper-clad steel jacket bonded to a lead core to provide limited, controlled expansion with deep penetration and high weight retention. Bonding the jacket to the core prevents separation from high-energy impact on tough material like bone, ensuring the bullet stays together for deep expansion.
DGX® Bonded bullets are built to the same profile as the corresponding DGS® (Dangerous Game Solid) bullets but expand to 1½ to 2 times their bullet diameter.
- The thicker 0.098 copper-clad steel jacket of DGX® Bonded sets it apart from other dangerous game bullets, allowing it to tear through tough material like hide, muscle and bone.
- DGX® Bonded features a flat nose with serrated sections to deliver a uniform expansion from 100 to 150 yards and straight penetration, reducing possible deflections.
- The bonding process locks the jacket and lead core together, improving the retained weight of the expanded bullet.
