    I just saw this on another forum. It hasn't been released yet, and Hornady reps said any info was leaked ahead of their November launch.

    I don't know about you all, but if it really works on zombies, I want it! :laugh:

    I'm in for at least a couple of boxes. Per the link drew posted, it comes in several flavors (calibers).

    I've shot some of that .348 (second rifle I hunted with as a kid was dads model 71) And I can atest to the fact its capable of killing two maybe three zombies if you can get there heads lined up. I watched .348 crash through brush and small tree's like a D8 cat right before knocking some Blacktail off its feet.

    I wish I had the rifles in the .33 and .348.

    Ahh, the wonderful world of Marketing.

    As for "Zombies" I have an electronic "Zombie Repeller" in my front window. It's my own secret design. I know it works 'cause I haven't seen any Zombies since I put it there.

    Still have some work to do though. Hopefully I can tune it so it will also work on Jehovah Wittnesses, Cleaner Salesmen, Magazine Salesmen, and worst of all Politicians.

    I'm more interested to find out what the z-max bullet is that they are using. FMJ with a painted tip or v-max with a different color plastic tip? Would be interesting if they developed a new bullet for this "novelty" ammo

    Looks kind of like their ballistic tip design. I shot a Whitetail deer in KS a few years back with a .30 cal 165 gr. ballistic tip. Had a bad angle on the shot, but it broke his front leg, took out the bottom of his heart, and exited the other side. I would think it would make it thru at least a couple of zombie heads if you could get them lined up.

    My mistake, I was using Federal Premium with NOSLER Ballistic Tips.

    The sale to U.S. was blocked by attorneys from the Z.C.L.U. (Zombie Civil Liberties Union).
    They sited it as a vicious attack on a misunderstood minority.
    Funding for the Z.C.L.U. has been linked to several major U.S. pharmaceutical corporations. :)

    I am also secretly hoping that a major ammo manufacturer will market their product as "tweaker repellent," but that's less politically correct than zombie defense. Of course, there are a lot of similarities between the two. Maybe I am just splitting hairs.

    Exactly! It may just be a gimmick, but this stuff will fly off the shelves.

    Tweaker, Zombie, what's the difference? Maybe a couple of tattoo's?

    A followup suit is also being readied by the NAAZP;) You figure out the acronym yourself.

    Great. I can see it now, we won't even be able to call them zombies anymore. I think they prefer the term "Undead-Americans."

    Once I get the production line up and running, I'll totally market anti-tweaker ammo, I'll fill the hollowpoints up with vitamins and sobriety.
