    I have use my 458 Lott w/500gr DGX's on Brown hunts and love them. Great weight retention and penetration is off the chart.

    I'd go the www.accuratereloading.com and ask on their African Hunting Forum. There were some discussions in the past, so I know they've been used.

    If they work on cape buffalo........................do I really need to say more? Larger animal, thicker skin, bigger bones.

    Excellent point, if it can take a cap buffalo it is more than bullet enough to take a brown, it is a foregone conclusion. I haven't taken a Brown but have taken a Cape Buffalo with an A-Frame, and if the Hornady DGX's can take a Cape then they are in the class of the A-Frame.

    I'm not a 100% on that as the Hornadys are new and I have a pretty high regard for the A-Frame, but let's agree that the Hornadys are good enough.
