Say it for the first time (http://www.gunsandammo.com/2011/10/14/hornady-zombie-max-ammo) today at a GUN SHOW. 9mm Ballistic looks good, but I am not sure about the name.

I bought 2 boxes for my Sig 229 in .40 before I traded it; the rounds were definitely STOUT in both recoil and audible report...I'd rather use generic white box Winchester 180gr Bonded JHP (PDX-1) in 50 round boxes

It's basically the same ammo as their Critical Defense.

Thats what I have heard. Critical defense bullet loaded to the same specs, but in a unplated brass case and has a green polymer tip instead of red.

My wife bought me a box of it for Christmas this year. I think I'll hang onto it for the box alone. I bet Hornady makes a bunch of money of this fun little endeavor.

It's a typical, conventional JHP load in a typical, conventional service caliber. Probably the archetype of the term 'service caliber' by the time we move on to other forms of projectile propulsion or non-projectile weapons.

I doubt your lawyer would have the slightest bit of trouble getting a letter stating such from Hornady if you ever needed it. I don't picture them as the type of company that wouldn't fire you off a letter stating that the packaging is a piece of contemporary humor that goes along with the current zombie fiction craze, but the bullets and cartridges themselves are absolutely ordinary defense-oriented ammunition.

Besides, any half-decent lawyer with a quarter-decent judge should have no problem deading the argument that the box the bullets came in somehow makes the shooting more or less acceptable.

This. I'm beyond tired of people going on about how using it for self defense would be legal suicide... BS.

But as far as the round... No way I would use critical defense, its below sub-par IMO

This ammo is a really good example of great marketing. The Critical Defense line of ammo was not selling well, especially to LE agencies. So, someone says, well let's change the color of the bullet insert from red to florescent green and market the stuff as anti-zombie ammo. I hear it's now selling well.

Selling well is an understatement.

Great hollowpoint from a major ammo company. Good stuff. And funny boxes to boot.

As far as legal problems, I wouldn't lose sleep over it...ammo companies use aggressive and/or memorable names on their products all the time-HyrdaShok, Golden Sabre, Pow'rball, Silvertip, Doubletap, etc. Nobody is ever gonna sell HP ammo called Baby Soft Ammo. Well, you never know...

Besides, as popular as zombie movies and TV shows are now, it might get a few jurors on your side:)

Okay boys and girls. Follow the below link to Hornady's own Zombie Max website and carefully read the disclaimer under the word WARNING!

http://www.hornady.com/store/Zombie-Max-Handgun/

Not once, not twice but three times does it state that this ammo is for use on ZOMBIES, not humans, animals or even plants.

Use your brains people! If you use Z-Max ammo in a SD shooting and some prosecutor or plaintiff's attorney wants to make an example out of you, you don't think that they'll be drooling like Pavlovs' dogs just waiting to introduce 5'x5' posters with blown up pictures of the disclaimer AND your box of ammo to parade in front of both Judge and Jury?

You think that Hornady would be stupid enough to send a representative from their company to your defense to explain why YOU chose to violate their warnings and disclaimers printed directly on every box of Z-Max ammo AND on their website?? Do you think that you or your attorney can defend your use of ammo that specifically states NOT TO BE USED ON HUMANS?

If you're foolish enough to buy and use Z-Max for SD, good luck to you. (No, not really, you get what you deserve...). :wavey:

When your disclaimers and warnings tell you the ammunition is specifically for unicorns and leprechauns, it's not meant to be taken seriously, and no reasonable, non-histrionic adult would assume it was real.

Anyone taking this disclaimer seriously needs to seek help. More help than the people who actually buy the stuff in case of a zombie apocalypse. Its obviously just clever marketing

So, when Hornady places the following on every box of ammo and on their website:

"WARNING:THIS IS LIVE AMMUNITION. THIS IS NOT A TOY.

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!"

everyone needs to ignore it, right? And this ammo IS actually toy ammo, right? Hornady warns that Z-Max IS NOT A TOY, but we shouldnt take this serious. Right?

And I guess that every anti-gun prosecutor and plaintiff's attorney out there wont take Hotnady's warnings seriously either. Right? They will all just laugh it off as being some silly marketing ploy to sell "deadly killer Zombie ammo" to every gun nut and would-be up and coming mass murderer.

Obviously you and many others have either forgotten or don't know about mass killers Gian Ferri from 101 California St and Colin Ferguison the Long Island subway killer who both used Winchester's Black Talon (aka: "Black Felon", "Teflon Coated Cop Killer", "Tissue Tearing Buzz-Saw") ammo back in 1993. Winchester paid the price for both bad marketing and damaging anti-gun press they received immediately after 101 Calif St and prior to the L.I. shootings. (Winchester had actually decided to stop retail distribution of BT ammo prior to the L.I. shooting).

If people are stupid enough to use Zombie Max ammo in their SD guns, then IMO they deserve to get ripped apart by the lawyers in court if they ever wind up shooting someone, whether it's justified or not. Stupid needs to hurt.

Hopefully Hornady's ammo won't lead to proposed legislation to ban all kinds of ammo like the use of the infamous Black Talon ammo did back in the early 1980's by anti-gun legislators like Sen. Patrick Moynihan did.

They might not hang you for using Zombie ammunition, but I'll be damned if I want to pay my attorney $250 an hour for how many hours to research, type up, correspond, rehearse, argue, etc... that in court. If anything, it just makes you look like a jackoff who doesn't take things that kill very seriously. At best, risking that some reporter gives it legs and you wind up famous for something you'd rather forget doesn't sound fun.

It is 6-10 a box higher, I like the box as a joke. Wouldn't use as my carry ammo because I dont want to run 5 -6 box threw all my carry guns of it 1st. Will stick to my carry ammo that I know works fine.

Seriously, I would expect more from a company like Hornaday then to stoop to this level of nonsense marketing.

Imagine a professional journalist writing that someone shot another person with Zombie-only ammunition.

They would immediately discredit themselves and the article would be worthless.

Question is, who wants to be stupid enough to be the guinea pig and be the first to use this ammo and then try to defend themselves in court when the warning on this product clearly advises AGAINST using the ammo on humans?

We're not talking about rubber bands or water balloons folks, we're talking about lethal ammunition that's designed to be used in lethal firearms. There's people that truely HATE all aspects of firearms and those who own and use firearms, be it for target shooting, hunting and especially for personal self-defense. This ammo (and now "zombie" guns and edged weapons) is just one more object to be used against us. This crap is going to make the Black Talon fiasco look like kiddie's play the moment someone goes on a mass murder rampage using "Zombie Ammo".
