Below are a few photos from a friend of mine. These were the projectiles you sent to me in New Zealand. A 150gr Rhino Penetrator at 2640fps recovered from a red stag shot with a 6.5mm Creedmoor at relatively close range in the bush. Frontal lower neck shot, broke spine plus number of ribs and recovered in the rugstring. 5 animals taken with that load so far, all oneshot kills.

Hi Kobus.  This is what a 55gr RHINO Solid Shank does to a big warthog boar.  The first pic is entry and second, the exit.  The Bullet was recovered just under the skin on the opposite shoulder.  The mushroom was perfect.  It was shot at about 100m and took all the plumbing out above the heart.  I’m utterly convinced that your RHINO Solid Shank Core Bonded Hunting Bullet is the best performing Premium Grade Hunting Bullet I’ve ever come across in 50yrs of Hunting and subsequent reloading. Regards. Ivan

Goeie dag oom Kobus

 

Ons het vanoggend oor die foon gesels oor die herlaai van die Rhino Solid shank op my .308 180gr en ook my broer se 9.3 286gr

 

Ons is baie baie tevrede met die toetse wat ons op hulle gedoen het

 

Die rondtes is in n trekker band met grond in geskiet sodat ons die punte kon herwin

 

op die .308 180gr solid shank weeg hy na skoon maak 150.9gr

op die 9.3 286gr solid shank weeg hy na skoon maak 274.4gr

 

Let wel dat die grond in die band baie klipperig was en dit tot n groot deel van gewig verloor op die punte was.

 

Ek hoop dat die fotos aangeheg vir oom van waarde sal dra.

 

Baie vriendelike groete uit Krugersdorp!

 

Pieter Venter

 

PS: As oom enige toets punte het wat ons kan toets vir oom is oom meer as welkom om vir ons te stuur!!!

Ons sal dit baie wardeer!

 

Ek het dan wel ook ‘n .303 maar het die punte nog nie getoets nie!

Hi Kobus.  These are the entry and exit wounds on a Bushpig shot at 25m with a .308”, 160gr RHINO Solid Shank Bullet.  This farmer is shooting Bushpig and Warthog on a regular basis and reports that the meat damage is minimal. I believe your Solid Shank Bullet is the BEST PREMIUM GRADE HUNTING BULLET on the market today. I would not even attempt using any other bullet to harvest game. Kind regards. Ivan Alt

Hallo daar Kobus.

Jammer ek vat so lank om te reageer.

Baie dankie vir die opvolg van my bestelling, dit word waardeer.

Ek sal jou laat weet sodra dit hier aanland.

So pas het ek mooi nuus gekry van iemand wat ‘n 40gr .222 Solid Shank koeëltjie uit ‘n rooibok gehaal het met perfekte verrigting.

Die .22 doppie vir skaal

Groete

200 gr 300HH pulled out of a kudu’s shoulder opposite side in the skin. Weighed the bullet and it weighed 199gr. Bullet performed amazingly. Hardly any meat damage.

Please send to your friend and tell him I’m moer of impressed.

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.

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.

Penetrator at 746 meters per second at distance of 168 meters Bonded at 774 meters per second at distance of 130 meters . Both shot at blue wildebeest

20140904_141626-1 20140904_141635-1

 

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

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.

Another good hunting trip with my 375H&H Browning. 380gr rhino’s was definitely worth it.

 

 

 

 

To whom it may concern:

I have attached 2 photos of a 175gr .303 solid shank bullet recovered from a kudu bull. The animal was quatering away and the shot was a high spinal shot midway down the spine(length) of the animal. This was my first animal taken with these bullets, and I am a very satisfied customer!

I thought I would just give you feedback on the excellent performance of your product.

Hi Kobus

This is another .338 Win Mag bullet head recovered from a Kudu Bull I felled about 4 years ago. The same ballistics as per my prior mail. This was also a one shot kill. The head was unfortunately nipped by the butchers meat saw hence the missing corner.

This was also a one shot kill.

Kind regards
Matt
