    They check for consistent diameter a second time.

    Huh?

    DS stands for "double struck" meaning each bullet is resized after being plated to ensure a uniformly round bullet.

    You will have to shoot them in your gun and see. Usually, at least the last time I bought them, the double struck bullets were about $1.00 more so thats what I got.
