The Peregrine Legacy

Peregrine Bullets has officially been designing and manufacturing all kinds of monolithic bullets since 2009, but our story starts much earlier with an alliance between gun lovers and passionate hunters with the dream of conquering the bullet world.

The Origins of Peregrine Bullets

In 1986 Adriaan Rall, teamed up with Louis Nel to manufacture lathe turned copper bullets. The two-man team made a very good start to create a new generation of monolithic bullets. Shortly afterwards Louis passed away and a period of inaction followed. In 2009 Adriaan teamed up with Corno Van Rooyen to start a new chapter of lath turned monolithic bullets called Peregrine Bullets. In 2012 Alliwyn Oberholster joined the Peregrine team.  In August 2020 Adriaan Rall sadly passed away. His legacy will always be part of all our bullets.

The Challenge

Peregrine Bullets / Peregrine Monolithics is where you will find close to 500 uniquely different bullets to choose from. All our products are very modern and state of the art lathe turned bullets. We cover all shooting disciplines, hunting, target shooting and extreme long range shooting for all kinds of rifles, lever actions and handguns. At Peregrine we believe in the future and invest heavily in research and development through the use of modern tools and state of the art computational flow design and analysis.

Adriaan and Louis’ research experiments delivered promising results and their prototypes laid the foundation many years ago for a bright future. Many years later on Corno and Adriaan created six new bullet families for a solid platform to build and grow the new Peregrine Bullets company. Today in a total of eight families all our bullets evolved to very advanced designs with performance and quality the highest priority.

From humble beginnings to healthy growth

Towards the end of 2010 Peregrine formally entered the South African market of monolithic bullets. In a relatively short time the product line expanded to include various copper and brass monolithic bullets. Since its inception Peregrine Bullets addressed and remedied all the difficulties associated with copper based monolithic bullets.

Today, a decade later, our products are sold on 3 continents and we also have our own unique copper alloy that is highly similar to the jackets of cup and core bullet. This copper alloy offer all the advantages of copper jackets in terms of reduced copper fouling and reduced friction. Our bullet material is softer than cup and core jackets for enhanced barrel performance and comparable life.
