I'm aware of the dislike of Hornady DGX by some and fully justifiable I might add. I did reach out to Hornady in reference to their new "bonded" DGX ammo now offered. My question was if the box identified new product from old or by product coding. Below is the response I received.

Recently you requested assistance from our customer support center. The following is a summary of your request and our response.

Hello Sir,

The new Bonded bullets will all have a lot number (7-digit number on the bottom of stick on label on the box) and the first three numbers will be 319....; there are some with 318 prefixes but if you stick to the 319 prefix there will be no question.
Regards,
TZ



I've used the old DGX on several brown & black bear in AK without issue but bears an buff, ELE ect are a whole different game when reliability must be an utmost assurance...

Once bitten, twice shy.
Those who had a bad experience with Hornady are not likely to give them another chance.

I hope the bonded DGX has solved their problem. They are wonderful folks and I wish them well. However, their original DGX failed me In a way that could have gotten someone killed. I will be using Swift A-Frame and trophy bonded bearclaw for dangerous game ‘soft’ applications. Best of luck with your decision.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
