LOL Anti-Zombie ammunition specially design for the Zombie Apocalipse

LOL... I thought this was an April's fool joke or something, but it is an actual ammunition brand from Hornandy, specially designed for the zombie apocalypse:


Introducing Zombie Max™ from Hornady®

00 buckshot is not bad, but deer slug has way more stopping power.

Cut shotgun shells, numbers 4 upto 8 works well against slow movers, fast movers not so much. Deer slugs would be great. Low tech=sharpened folding shovel, or a machete. Hungarian SA2000 semiAuto for the fast movers. Merry Christmas.

My brother bought me a box of the .40's as a bit of a joke. He also bought me World War Z and 'bleeding' zombie targets.

Those things are a play on their critical defense loads...they put the same rubber peice inside the hollow point tip...which is great cause they hang up and cause FTF's which is exactly what any good zombie killer person is looking for...

Never had an issue with the polymer tip in the hundreds of rounds of 380 I've run through my little Bersa, and that's not exactly worlds most advanced design. Just got a box of 9mm to test in my Ruger as a possible carry round in that. And of course, never a hiccup in the 357 Mag revolver either. What were you getting FTF's in?

Yay, another acronym learned, Failure To Feed. I had a few of those but is not the rifle nor the ammo, is just me pushing the bolt forward after a cartridge was ejected, without pulling it all the way back to feed the new round. Keeps scaring the heck out of me because those have to be treated as a misfire. Or should that be called "Failure To Load"?

Perhaps you're not gripping the pistol well enough. Possibly, due to different amounts of recoil, you're experience a failure to feed due to 'limp wristing'. My brother's FNP40 does it all the time if you don't hold it well enough. I've never seen it happen with my Baby Eagle. Some pistols seem more prone to it than others, and some loads seem to make those particular pistols worse.

going by that, you wouldn't even enable the trigger to be reset if you aren't pulling it back far enough.

The trigger gets reset when you move the bolt up...

- up, resets trigger
- back, ejects shell
- forward, pushes new round
- down, to lock it in place.

With that single mauser type action we can't hook you up with a cartel coil-loader For quick reloads you might consider a "Poncho Villa"style of bandalero(mucho gusto great hunter).

You can however legally purchase 2 banana clips and reverse tape them together to impress the future kin folks.
*Never get caught in the Everglades with a lunch box of pastelles and an empty clip in your shooten-iron.

With all this shooting,ammo,PBR longneck guzzeling in Georgia will there be time and money left for us to continue renovating your new crib?

Hey Ruben.

If yer still in Georgia please be aware that the sandpits are especially treacherous in the cooler months because of the rain and it not evaporating and making that quicksand situation.

Plus the whole illegal enforced slavery thing if you do survive.

Be cool. Say "Yes Ma'm" and "ya'll" and "Bless You!' and you might get out of there alive.

And if you have to swear it's "dayum" real quick.

I know that most of our local thugs don't.

My 1911 had a few...not too bad. But enough that I think i'll just stick with good ole HP's. I wasn't limp wristing, I don't have a problem with any other HP's i've shot through it...Coulda just been that box too, bad batch maybe?

These sunbelt thugs are rolling in a Lexus or BMW as a work car.
I seriously doubt they are packing last years 2010 model Mac-15 or Uzi.

"Limp wristing" can also lead to "light in your loafers"which also can effect your aim.

Most likely the spoils would be oddly looking AK47s, designed for the illiterate peasants who don't care about the inability to shoot MOA @ 25 yards because they don't know what MOA is anyway.
