I was just shopping for ammunition over at Cabelas, you know for the end of the world and all that, and discovered Hornady‘s awesome ‘certified zombie ammunition’ collection. Apparently, the whole line of specialized Zombie killer rounds were introduced to the market about a year ago, and I have to say, I’ve seen very few Zombies roaming the streets since, so they must be effective, right? This is still the only ‘certified zombie ammunition’ available too.
I don’t know what exactly makes the neon green tipped bullets more effective at ‘vaporizing’ the undead than the regular high quality products Hornady manufactures, but I do have to say I’m digging the shotgun shells a lot. I feel like even the guy in their demonstration video would have been better off with a 12-guage. He should have never let them get that close with his semi-automatic rifle and it worried me that he couldn’t successfully shoot through Zombie’s for single shot multiple kills, but then again he emptied his pistol not killing zombies at medium range and then switched to the long gun for up close, so who knows what’s going on in his head.
The festive packaging is great and even comes with zombie apocalypse survival tips, plus the actual shells look pretty cool too. The only drawback I can see with this whole line is that if you do go around shooting things that don’t deserve it, any sort of CSI ballistics investigation is going to quickly be able to narrow the suspect pool down, knowing the shooter was almost assuredly some kind of dork. So, you know, don’t shoot things that you shouldn’t be shooting, or don’t deserve it anyway.
