Hornady DGX 480 gr bullets from Zebra and Buffalo plus unfired.

About 2050 fps from Army & Navy Hammergun (probably J. Manton - maker) both animals about 30 to 40 paces distance.

Looks like they did the job as advertised

Yes, and even though there are tougher bullets available than the DGX, I used them because they regulated way better in my particular double than the other brands I tried, including Woodleighs.
A lot of "techno geeks" like to claim the old "cup & core" type bullets will practically bounce off a sparrow.
But, that hardly fits with the past 100+ years of big game hunting history.

Both fired rounds look like they performed just like they were supposed to. I don't understand the "cup & core" bullet dislike. I have used them for 90% or better on big game hunting. Before Speer Grand Slam bullets were changed from a partition type to a bonded bullet they were my favorite killer. Every animal I shot with a 180 grain grand slam in my 30-06 was a one shot kill out to 350 yards. Not all anti- cup & core people are inexperienced but I have to believe a majority don't have much practical experience and are just echoing nonsense they have read.

Yes, they performed just like they were supposed to, at least in my opinion any way.

Hi Bruce,
You might have something there with the experienced vs the inexperienced "just echoing nonsense they have heard" but, I do not know for sure.
