It's October. What red-blooded American retailer wouldn't want to capitalize on the season? They already sell reindeer ammo for x-mas time.

Sooooo you pay $16.50 for a box of 20 round zombie ammo? Does it offer anything special besides having the name zombie attached and having the name Hornady behind it?

It's horandy a-max ammo. You'll have to price compare to see if its worth buying for yourself. I think it's a nifty novelty. I prefer sealed cans for real zombie apocalypse:rolleyes: ammo.

I think it is catchy. I Would buy a box just to have around. I saw a long time ago one of those "fire boxes" that said "" break glass in case of zombie apocalypse"" And it had a fake shotgun with shells. Make one of those and put it in there.

How do we know what kind of zombie we are going to have to fight. There are the slow moving kind that eat brains, there are the kind who only die if you remove their brain, there are even really fast movers who eat anything and are really hard to kill. I suggest a range of ammo types to deal with zombies resting (or moving slow) at long range, ammo to deal with the really tough zombies, ammo for close and tough zombies (maybe some magnum 12ga with silver shot. And speaking of silver bullets, what about the zombies (actually vampires, but it's general halloween talk) that die only from silver bullets, or garlic filled bullets might also work for vampires. For those creatures who can't stand light we could shoot bullets with leds in them, along with a really bright light mounted on the rifle.

This is serious and complex bussiness here, we can't just trust the manufacturer that they found the perfect ammo for all possible zombies.

Most of the zombies we have to fight eat processed meat, drive Prisuses (Priusi?) and SUV's, shop at Walmart, and do whatever the people in the TV tell them to do.

-W

People who drive Priusi (liked that one) do not eat meat of any kind, and even if they were starving they would still only eat some organically fed free ranging chicken (turkey, in case you don't know, is now considered to be bad). People who drive SUVs (at least the nice ones) don't shop at Walmart because in order to feed an SUV you need a lot of money, and people with a lot of money shop at fancier stores. They all do what the people on the TV tell them to do, they just choose to listen to different people on TV. I like to listen to Jon Stewart, because at least he is funny, whether one agrees with him or not. Those guys on FOX just seem so angry all the time.

Though we might call these people zombies let's not let anyone think that we actually need to "fight" them. Some people reading posts on a gun site might think that you were suggesting actually "fighting" with Prius and SUV drivers, and people who eat processed meat and shop at Walmart. I am sure you just meant that figuratively.

Good point!

And yeah, it's figurative. If any fighting actually had to be done, it'd make more sense to just poison the Starbucks supply! (I kid!)

I don't believe in killing. While I do believe a large segment of the world population has been devolving over the last 100 years (stupid people breed faster then intelligent people), I do believe that there will always be a need for manual labor. Now if only we can teach those zombies to make a triple shot grande extra froth decaf upside-down spring water, we'll be golden.

Depends on how many Zombies are residing in your area, we might want to stock up on more.

#Occupation of Zombies needs to be dealt with...

Do Green tip NATO rounds count as Zombie Repellant?:
M855, Steel penetrator, 62 grain, 5.56mm is what I am stocked up on...

I am sure that they will work too.

Actually, from what I understand, the green tip of these zombie bullets contain a concentrated nerve agent that cures the effects that the zombie virus has on people. Now if only they could figure out how to stop the effects of the lead delivery system killing the subjects, then we'd be golden! :facepalm:

*Remember, in the event of a zombie apocalypse, you don't want to be firing off rounds left and right. Every time you pull the trigger, you are creating a large amount of noise! Noise attracts zombies, therefore you would need more ammo and a better get away plan. Only use guns when needed. If you could slip past 5 zombies or just kill one with a blunt/sharp object, do so. No need to draw attention to yourself.

I obviously know nothing about zombies compared to some of you. I'm beginning to regret selling my 12 gauge. My initial thought was to use m193, but should I really be looking for 855 to maybe hit more than one with a shot or some sort of soft nose to transfer the energy better?
