Long after Louis Nel passed away, Adriaan decided to rally a new team to help him with the development of his designs and so he joined hands with Corno van Rooyen to launch the South African based company, Peregrine Bullets, in 2009.
At Peregrine Bullets the design and development of a marketable monolithic bullet began in all earnest. Adriaan was determined to honor Louis Nel’s legacy by successfully designing and manufacturing the best bullet in the world.
Towards the end of 2010 they formally entered the market of monolithic bullets. Following on their earlier work together, and through the use of highly advanced computerized software along with high quality international equipment in their developmental phase, Peregrine Bullets was able to launch their first copper monolithic bullet that year, the VRG-3(Bushmaster).
In a relatively short time, Peregrine expanded its product line to include various copper and brass monolithic bullets which was made available to the public. In addition the company became the only manufacturer to develop and hold patent rights to the world’s only expanding monolithic bullet to make use of the pneumatic force of compressed air to cause expansion in their bullets.
Since inception Peregrine Bullets has addressed all the difficulties associated with copper based monolithic bullets, a task that had proven to be nearly impossible in earlier years. As a result, Adriaan lays claim to having developed the world’s first monolithic bullet to overcome any and all aforementioned problems.
