In what I can only describe as the most brilliant marketing scheme of all time, Hornady – makers of some of the finest ammunition in the world – have released their new “Zombie Max” zombie killing bullets.
On their website, they have a full page spread about the new ammunition. They make it clear that this is not a joke and that these rounds are real, not toys and not a gag.
They say the following -
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!
And follow it up with this disclaimer -
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!
And it’s only $15 per 20 round box. I don’t know about you but I have 100 rounds sitting in my ammo case, next to me right now. I plan on being fully prepared for when the walking dead start chomping on my neighbors and I can’t think of any better way than to have my 12 gauge loaded up with PROVEN zombie killing rounds.
