Zombie Ammunition – Weekend Weirdness

This is real. Seriously. And note the tagline: “Just in case”.

In order for us to be better prepared for the impending zombie apocalypse, the ammunition manufacturer, Hornady, has released ammunition specifically for combating the hordes of the walking undead. This is the description of their new line of awesome ammo:

Be PREPARED — supply yourself for the Zombie Apocalypse with Zombie Max™ ammunition from Hornady®! Loaded with PROVEN Z-Max™ bullets…yes PROVEN Z-Max™ bullets (have you seen a Zombie?). Make sure your “bug out bag” is ready with nothing but the best!


Disclaimer: Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition is NOT a toy (IT IS LIVE AMMUNITION), but is intended only to be used on…ZOMBIES, also known as the living dead, undead, etc. No human being, plant, animal, vegetable or mineral should ever be shot with Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition. Again, we repeat, Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition is for use on ZOMBIES ONLY, and that’s not a nickname, phrase or cute way of referring to anybody, place or thing. When we say Zombies, we mean…ZOMBIES!

There’s even an excellent HD video to go along with the launch of this new ammunition (sorry, can’t imbed):

Here’s the official website for this desperately-needed ammunition:

Are YOU ready for zombies?

    We already have Zombie Ammunition being manufactured, Those bullets whose name i never recall that acts as a micro fragmentation grenade at impact. Police uses them to avoid the projectile from passing through the baddies and injuring innocents, though they’re much more guarateed to kill the target.

    Well we do have a Zombie Banking apocalypse right now.

    But instead of eating brains they want to consume your savings and your taxes.

  3. I actually used Zombie stuff to good effect on picking up a younger chick. Found out she was playing zombie iphone game and asked if she’d rather sex up a zombie, vampire or werewolf. She got into and worked out nice for me too.

    Speaking of zombies PM, what about some Halloween game tips?

    • As I am not into Halloween, I have enquired to some areas of the Manosphere where such wisdom is available. Perhaps the answers will yield a blog post here or somewhere else in the Manosphere.

    This add made me laugh. Its been popping up all over the blogs and what I really want to see are some sales figures from hornady, to see how this add campaign is working out for them.

    Hughman and rhahael,

    those are called “glazer rounds” and they are more designed not to penetrate walls, but a body does tend to slow them down as well.

  7. It’s V-Max (varmint load) repackaged in a nice box and with a yellow polymer tip instead of the usual orange-ish red. Pretty good ammo in the rifle cartridge lines for Groundhogs, Coyotes and the like. The pistol ammo appears to be Hornady XTP or Critical Defense bullet lines with the regular polymer plug replaced with a yellow one.

    Rhahel refers to the Glaser Safety Slug bullet design (Glaser Blue) which is manufactured to fragment on impact. The design of this bullet was meant to avoid over penetration and pass through of interior walls. Police departments rarely use this round and stick with regular JHP (jacketed hollow points) such as Speer Gold Dot, Federal HST, and Winchester Ranger T for duty loads as the JHP design meets the FBI ballistic test metrics for duty loads and the Glaser design does not.

    (12 inches minimum penetration in ballistics gel through heavy clothing with 1.5 time expansion of original bullet diameter – one of the test protocols)

    JHP designs tend to expand and stay inside the suspect rather than pass through and out like ball ammunition (solid projectile) and are much safer for bystanders and less damaging to the suspect as they do not generally create entry and exit wounds like ball does. NYPD, one of the last major U.S. metropolitan police departments to switch to JHP designs had particular problems with ball ammo passing through suspects and hitting other officers and bystanders. Since switching to the Speer Gold JHP 9mm 124 gr +p duty load they have not had this issue.

    Glaser rounds break up on impact, but do not penetrate deeply enough to have much if any chance of immediate physical incapacitation. They also do very poorly through any kind of heavy clothing or intermediate barrier such as having to fire through auto body sheet steel or automotive windshields, something the Police have to do from time to time.

    Generally the Glasers only produce a psychological stop. Meaning, the suspect has been shot and chooses to stop doing that which got him shot rather than get shot again. They behave In very similar fashion to the mythical “use bird shot in a shotgun for defense or police purposes” No, do not do that.

    Use 00 or #1, #4 Buck, or slugs. A standard 12 Gauge 2 3/4 inch, shell of 00 Buck delivers 9 pellets of approximately .30 caliber to the target and is roughly equivalent to hitting the suspect with a 9 round burst from a 9mm SMG in one dose. Remember Granny, shotguns are not area effect weapons and must be aimed.

    A physical stop is when the projectile cause the suspect to be physically incapacitated, which is something all handguns (and birdshot equipped shotguns) suck at. Rifles are rifles, handguns are handguns.

    Any handgun in the common service calibers (9mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, .45 ACP) will perform more or less the same with some having characteristics lending themselves to barrier penetration over others. Some with advantages in weight and capacity, etc. over others All handguns are a compromise in incapacitation effect versus convenience of carry when compared to patrol rifles and shotguns.

    And to throw the Manosphere angle on it. When FBI was examining the 10 mm as a replacement for 9mm after the infamous Miami Shootout in which agents died, they backed off because the recoil characteristics and size of the S&W prototype handguns were too much for female agents, and smaller male agents to use proficiently. In order to save sales, S&W developed the .40 S&W loading which can fit in a standard 9mm size frame (example, Glock 17 9mm becomes Glock 22 .40S&W) and thus was born one of the most popular police duty calibers. FBI issues agents choice of Glock G22, G23 [.40 S&W] or option to qualify with Glock G17, G19 [9mm] if not able to do so with .40 S&W. Some .45 ACP platforms are approved if the agent qualifies but he will have to purchase on own dime. Which is never a good idea. For liability reasons it is best to use the company tools when doing company work, use personal tools when doing personal work.

    So now you know.

    ZLX1 does guns.

    Back to discussing Marriage 2.0 and Wimmins. 🙂

  8. i like this ZLX1 fellah.

    danny does the guns too.

    for home defense i have a 9 milly-vanilli. i use hornady “critical defense” ammo 115 grain XTF round for my Ruger P90. i WANT a kimber .45 acp. but .45’s kick too much for me (i’m 5’4″ 132 lbs).

    i also run a mossburg 500 persuader with heat shield, 5 round stock cartridge and collapsible stock. i use winchester PDX 12 rounds, it features 1 slug and 3 oo buckshots. and an MSR AK-47 with 7.62x39mm. i think i’ll be ok for the apocalypse.

  9. I meant Ruger P95z

  10. Yep, have a box of .40S&W for my G23. Ya never know…. (and, as an engineer, I well know the need for proper equipment for the task).
