Zombie Bullets In High Demand Following Flesh-Eating Attacks
DETROIT (WWJ) Worried about a zombie attack? Buy zombie bullets.
Talk about zombies and a possible zombie apocalypse has increased due to recent gory accounts of drug-induced, flesh-eating attacks in the news.
Stores across the U.S., including in Metro Detroit, are getting in on the undead action by selling Zombie Bullets, made by Hornady Manufacturing.
In promoting the product on their website, Hornady suggests, Be PREPARED supply yourself for the Zombie Apocalypse with Zombie Max ammunition from Hornady! Loaded with PROVEN Z-Max bullets MAKE DEAD PERMANENT!
So, will this ammunition actually defend against the things that go bump in the night?
WWJ Newsradio 950′s Zahra Huber spoke with company spokesman, Everett Deger, who said, while the bullets are real, theyre only meant to be used on targets and not on people (or zombies).
Deger said company president Steve Hornady came up with the idea for Zombie Max bullets because of his love for zombie movies and shows.
After it gained some acceptance among some of us here in the company got on board with the idea we decided just to have some fun with a marketing plan that would allow us to create some ammunition designed for that fictional world, Deger said.
He said the Zombie Max and Z-Max bullets are Horadys most successful products.
This is probably one of the only (product) launches that weve seen when people who are not in the hunting and shooting industry will go out and they will purchase this, Deger said.
I mean, Ive heard of guys who buy it just because they think the packaging is cool and they set it on their cube and they dont even own a gun, he said. It has that sort of cross-market appeal, which I think is rare to find these days, where you can actually sell something that will transcend not just one market but go into several.
In Michigan, the bullets are available at Cabelas. You can find other retailers selling Zombie bullets at this link.

Introducing Zombie Max from Hornady®
Nice gimmick, but zombies are not worth the extra cost.
maybe some rat senator will ban them due to their name and the fear of losing zombie voting constituents.
it’ll then go the way of the Black Talon.(rebrand/renamed)
There were some zombies at last night’s Stanley Cup game. The first faceoff took place ten minutes before the game started.
Watch it - we got some people around here that think this is real...
I’d say a good sized deer slug from a good shotgun would stop one on a head shot....dead in his zombie tracks.
Head shots. Hitting the torso won’t do the job.
Zombie bullets Ping!
You got the bullets but what is the best gun for the job? One of the gun shows had a “competition” and a Soviet SKS was voted the winner.
AND NO I WILL NOT BE PINGING THE PREPPERS’ LIST FOR THIS STORY!
We got enough people that already think we are crazy, why promote it? ;-)
I still have an (old) brand-new box of the original Black Talons in .45 ACP, it should work on zombies. At least the "rampaging mobs of inner-city dwellers" zombies that one is most likely to encounter in Detroit.
Last October I saw a History Channel show in which a firearms expert contended that a .22 semi auto handgun would be the best defense. He said that .22 calibre bullets are lightweight and plentiful and a mere .22 headshot would easily disable a “zombie” brain.
Why did they cancel the leper hockey game?
There was a face off in the corner.
Har Har Har!!!!
