    These are current manufacture Hornady ammo code #8269 and #8268. They call them DGX and DGS

    From Hornady web site
    DGS® Bullets
    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.

    DGX® Bonded Bullets
    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. They feature 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.
