Hi

Would just like to give you some feedback on your bullets.

See attached pictures of a Rhino180grain soft point shot out my .300 wm on a warthog at 80m.

Hugely impressed with bullet performance!

Thank you! 

Kind Regards

Picture 1 (“Both Shots): The less expanded one is the 380gr Rhino recovered from my full frontal chest shot on Buffalo Bull at about 60m in 2013. The more expanded one is literally a point blank insurance shot into the buffalo behind the right shoulder, through the heart, opposite shoulder & was recovered under the skin on the far shoulder. Load was duplex load of 31,5gr S335 & 31,5gr S365 for 2185fps out of my 24” SAKO .375 H&H Barrel. Winchester Magnum Primer.

Picture 2 (“Rhino 270gr Eland”) The more expanded bullet (270gr) was taken from first standing Eland Bull at 200m. This was behind the shoulder, but travelled traversely through the rumen & recovered under the far skin. The less expanded 270gr Rhino was recovered from running Eland Bull #2 at 250m. This was a Heart shot & recovered under the opposite shoulder skin. Load was 65gr S335 for 2575fps out of my 24” SAKO .375 H&H Barrel. Winchester Magnum Primer.

Picture 3 (“IMG_5745”): Is the Elands heart after the less expanded bullet hit it. The 270gr Rhinos were bought many years ago by my Father, so they are early Generation (Batch 254). I find that at distances over 220m, they seem to still be very hard & expand much less due to the decreased velocity. Don’t get me wrong, they still work outstandingly, but I would like a bigger wound channel. However I cannot increase my S335 load any further, I use Quickload Ballistics Software & any load of S335 above 65gr puts me into the pink zone as far as pressure. Therefore I am experimenting with S355, which according to the ballistics software I can get another 100-150fps without exceeding the pressure limits onto the pink zone. I believe this slight increase in velocity will allow more expansion of the 270gr at distances between 220-300m.

Yes it’s a 180 grain Rhino Solid Shank bullet in caliber 30-06.

Bullet retrieved from the shoulder of a Blue Wildebeast.
Loaded to 835 m/sek or 2,740 fps.

This is the one of the best bullets I use.

I use Rhino bullets in several calibers such as; 6,5×55, 7x57R, 3006, 9,3×62 and 375 H&H Mag

Hi Kobus
 
Ek gebruik 235gr Rhino/58.0gr S335/2420 vt/s op my 9.3×62. Die afgelope naweek het ek ‘n Gemsbok op 110m “quartering to” geskiet, die skoot is in die middel vd nek in op die linkerkant, het die nek gebreek/af geskiet in die knoppe en net onder die vel gesit op die regter blad. Ek skat totale penetrasie was ongeveer 60cm met die punt wat die nek gebreek en deur die blad bene is.
 
Die punt het ‘n indrukwekkende 232.5gr vd oorspronklike 235.0gr behou en perfek omgeklink. Die 4 “petals” het 14.6mm en 14.56mm gemeet. Fotos aangeheg.

Ek het n blou wilde bees geskiet op 130m op die knoppe(skouer)

Dit was n 200gr punt wat uit gehaal is aan die ander kant van die skouer

Maw hy is regdeur die een skouer en het op die ander skouer gaan vas sit in die blad been

Die BWB het 30 m gehardloop en geval

Die patroon is gerecover en het 195,8 gr uit geweeg maw 98% retensie behou

Dankie vir die patroon hou aan met die goeie werk

Hier is vir julle n goeie advertensie. Ek het n blou wilde bees geskiet op 70m op die knoppe(skouer) Dit was n 180gr punt wat uit gehaal is aan die ander kant van die skouer onder die vel. Maw hy is regdeur die een skouer en het op die ander skouer gaan vas sit onder die vel. Die BWB het 10 m struikel en geval voor hy die tydlike met die ewige verwissel het Die patroon is gerecover en het 176.1 gr uit geweeg maw 97.8% retensie behou. Die waterbok was geskiet op 90m en is reg deur gewees en kon nie die punt recover nie. 3006 musgrave 50 grein  s365 kruit en 180 grein Rhino punt.
Ons sukkel net om n klein groepering te skiet maar vir n blad is hy reg Dankie vir die patroon hou aan met die goeie werk

Morning Kobus here are some good advertising photos for you. I shot the Blue wildebeest at 70m on the shoulders. I used a 180gr. Solid shank point. I retrieved the bullet on the far side under the skin. The bullet penetrated the shoulders and came to stop under the skin on the opposite side. The BWB stumbled for 10m and collapsed. I retrieved the bullet and it weighed 176.1gr. 97.8% weight retention. The Waterbuck was shot at 90m. The bullet penetrated the buck completely and bullet could not be recovered. I shoot a 3006 Musgrave with 50gr. S365 en use the 180gr. Rhino point. We are having some problem getting a tight group but for side on shots it’s good. Thanks for the bullet and keep up the good work.
