Once again the trustworthy Peregrine Bullets performed at their peak during yet another Big game hunt this year.
My recent hunt with Jimmy took us to the Limpopo province of South Africa where we hunted Zebra, Blue Wildebeest and Buffalo.
Jimmy opted to use my rifle a Remington Model 700 in calibre 375 H&H with 300gr Peregrine VRG3 Handloads leaving the barrel at 2600fps.
First in the lineup was a Zebra, we could unfortunately not recover the bullet as it passed straight through on a broad side shot at 50 yards.
Second in the lineup was the Buffalo Bull. He was slightly quartering towards us on a 80 yard shot, the bullet entered the right shoulder and was recovered under the skin on the left ribcage passing through shoulder bone and opposite rib in a straight line penetration. The bullet broke the right front leg that enabled an immediate second follow up shot. The follow up bullet entered right stomach and was recovered in the left shoulder tissue also with a straight line penetration.
The first Bullet had a weight of 283.1 gr after recovery and perfect expansion with no visible problems, a 94,3% weight retention.
The second bullet weighed 283.3 gr after recovery with perfect form and great expansion, a 94,4% weight retention.
Last in line was the Blue Wildebeest. This was a heavy quartering towards almost frontal shot. The bullet went through the right shoulder bone and was recovered under the skin on the opposite side just in front of the hind quarter. Perfect straight line penetration.
The recovered bullet weighed 283.4 gr – 94,5% weight retention with perfect form and expansion
This once again shows why we at Pro Hunting Safaris use Peregrine Hunting Bullets. They are in my opinnion the perfect African designed bullet for optimum results and best in class weight retention.
