    Dear fellow hunters ! Found this bullet this year on my trip from Sweden to Mozambique. I've tried Impala bullet on Roe Deer to Hippo, from Crocodile to Baboon, Moose to Bear, and I have to say that it's fantastic. Read some from Impala Bullets brochure and check in their web page. Forget all other bullets, you will only need this one. It's a fantastic feeling to have all animals "Impalized" ! ps, I use HH375, 270 grain...

    From Impala bullets Homepage... www.impalabullets.at

    Up to the late 19th century shooting was easy and simple. Black powder was the propellant and lead the bullet material. With the development of smokeless powders lead suddenly turned out being too soft. Hence a bullet jacket was introduced, firstly made of soft steel with copper and tombac to follow later.

    The full metal jacket bullet as a solution survived well into our time and due to the comparatively little wounding capability these bullets are even declared mandatory for military use by the Hague Convention.

    The search for better performance on game lead to a temporary solution, the soft point bullet. This bullet is, however, handicapped by its design in principle: To achieve proper and acceptable killing performance it has to shed its kinetic energy by either loosing mass (fragmentation) or enlarging its diameter (mushrooming).

    To do so, however, it has to rely on external assistance such as that impact velocity and target resistance have to be within certain limits. Going below these limits results in a FMJ effect and marginal wounding effect while on the other end of the scale excessive meat damage and insufficient penetration are imminent.

    The Future
    Mass- and shape consistent universal bullet.

    Kobus Du Plessis, known South African ballistician, consequently took advantage of the ballistic and forensic experience he had collected over decades. In 2002 he surprised hunters and experts as well with his ”shock wave inducing” Impala Solid.

    It all happened when a friend destroyed the ribcage of an impala female using a Marlin 45-70 Gov'T with a 350gr RNSP BULLET.

    Tissue displacement-not tissue destruction was the answer

    His approach was high frequency displacement rather than work done (J/s).

    This resulted in a bullet which’s sharp cutting edge and nose design develops strong radial shock waves in the animal’s organs.

    As no deformation is necessary the Impala bullets do not rely on a fine balance between impact velocity, bullet diameter, bullet mass and target resistance (skin, meat and bone). The bullets performance is machined into its profile using a CNC lathe other than conventional bullets that is dependant of the anatomical structure at point of entering the animal. The Impala Bullet is the only purposely manufactured shockwave inducing hunting bullet in the world.

    One Concept - Three Bullets

    Impala LWHV
    The Light Weight High Velocity is the All-around Bullet.

    Its incomparable flexibility permits its use at any distance, from springbok and eland up to big dangerous game, including even buffalo and elephant.

    Impala RNFP
    This construction combines maximum penetration with maximum stability (against obstacles in the line of flight as well as in the body) with excellent shockwave inducing capability.

    The bullet is heavier than the LWHV and trajectory not as flat. Target: all hunting situations where extremely long shots are not likely to be taken. In adequate calibres it is the optimum bullet for big and dangerous game. Driven hunts and tracking wounded game and hunting in thick cover are other tasks where this bullet shines.

    Impala CFN
    The lightweight, conical flat nose bullets designed for lever action rifles with tubular magazines, handguns and low recoil applications are extremely accurate and capable of very high velocity. This result in high energy, penetration and stopping power. These attributes make the bullet ideally suited for handgun hunting, self defence and law enforcement. The bullets are also used in rifle calibres as well as in guns such as the .30-30 Win., .444 Marlin and .45-70 Gov'T.

    Common Features
    Monolithic bullets (solids), CNC turned from a special brass alloy and well balanced.
    2-4 grooves to reduce barrel friction. That result in less pressure, less barrel fouling and superb accuracy.
    Non calibre sensitive cutting edge for maximum shock effect and tissue displacement.
    Equally suited for small and large game.
    High penetration, good stopping power and little meat damage.
    No lead contamination of game meat and environment. In the 21st Century there is no room for game meat that is contaminated with lead and shot to pieces!
    No more head shots to avoid excessive meat damage and run the risk of wounding animals.
    Bag your meat don’t destroy it!

    While the Impala may be a good modern design, there are others that are as good (or better) in that the GS Customs offer that and more.
    GS CUSTOM BULLETS - HV Bullets

    The new Woodleigh Hydro's are getting fantastic reports and North Fork is also reputed to be excellent in all respects.

    It is a fact that we have turned the corner on the velocity - performance dilema that plagued bullet makers and hunters for a very long time but there are a number of co's that have put out fantastic products.

    Never tryed GS bullets.... However, I have tried a few different and after first test of IMPALA bullets, in my HH375, I cant find anything better. i have supplied all my hunting friends in Sweden with IMPALA, just to test, and ALL AGREE, impala IS A FANTASTIC BULLET. We tested from 222-416 Rigby, and not only target shooting, but in hunting. The HH375 with Impala RN, Ive used for roedeer and hippo, duiker-1 ton crocodiles.... 50 meters, 100 meters 150 meters 200 meters.... Just aim were you want to hit and you will hit that spot, no thinking..... Solid or soft.... up or down.... just shoot !
    Try Impala bullets, you will never get disappointed.
    Kind regards
    Michael-

    Too late for me to try them this trip, but I'll keep this in mind for the future.
    Thanks.

    Good Morning Michael! Would you point me at the right direction for anyone selling Elephant tusks, I need a pair for traditional healing reasons. Anyone who can assist may please. Be blessed

    These are just lying around. How many do you need?
    They would be excellent to use for prostate removal.

    Make the trip up to Kruger National Park. Find some of the guys who who work for South African Nation Parks. I'm sure they'd love to talk to you about this.

    Unfortunately, most of the web site is not in English and prices are not in dollars.

    michaelhh375, I am making the assumption that you a scope with a mill-dot or similar type of reticle that "compensates" for distance. Either that or everyone's rifle is set at a point blank range that allows them to make an acceptable hit (not necessarily "X ring" on targets or animals from 50 to 200 yards.

    These may prove to be excellent bullets ... but I find it hard to understand how something can be labeled as "can't find anything better" after just one test?

    Thank you! I have made contact with people around Kruger, I am on route there, someone has pointed me to the right direction.

    Thanks to all those who responded with the intention to help, even to those who made a joke about it

    We need to know when to discern and keep an open mind to the wisdom we don't understand. Everyday is an opportunity for us to learn more about Self and Nature. Natural resource are always safer option for our health. Be blessed

    What about accuracy? Just went on their website, since I don't reload they wouldn't apply to me but I'd be interested in hearing more in the future.

    I can't find any US distribution, anybody know if they are imported yet?
