    I need to go to bed.

    I read "horny ammo."

    Definitely time to set the alarm and try again tomorrow.

    I don't buy Hornady ammo, although I buy components from them. Today I almost bought some Z-Max 00 Buckshot since it was just slightly cheaper than Winchester, but how the *&^% do I explain the "Zombie Max" ammo is I ever use it in a defensive shooting? I'm not one to put much stock in the theory that exotic ammo will look bad in court but c'mon- it's freaking ZOMBIE MAX!!! How do you not look like a nutbag shooting someone with that?

    hornady ammo ?

    The only difference is the polymer is green instead of red.

    I prefer critical duty over critical defense.... If I'm having to shoot someone I wanna make sure it gets there regardless of what stands between me and my target.

    I use the Critical Defense in 9mm and .357 mag. I use the Winchester PDX1 ammo in 45acp and Hornady XTP 300gr hollow points in 44 magnum. Biggest thing I could say is use a respectable ammo manufacturer and use what cycles best in the gun. Not all guns are the same. Some do not like the critical defense because of the polymer tip that protrudes from the hollow point. Try a few kinds out and see what cycles best. Better yet see what your local PD uses. If ever used in self defense it would be hard for a procecuting attorney to come after you because of the type of ammo used if you use the same as the PD. Whatever you do never modify or use reloads!
    I would rather die on my feet then live on my knees.

    And that "Critical Defense" ammo might sound better in court than "ZOMBIE MAX!", if you are concerned about such things.

    I prefer Federal HST for my handguns. As to the Hornady the Zombie ammo is just an attempt to cash in on a catch phrase. Kind of like tactical. If it says "Zombie or Tactical" it has to be better.

    Personally "I" am not concerned with lawyers trying to use the name against me, I would suggest he bring in some "Zombie witnesses" and have them testify how being shot with the "Z" is worse than any other .45 acp - but hey that's just me

    Fact is IF you are justified in the shooting the rest is moot in most cases IMO , and IF it wasn't justified the choice of ammo isn't going to be high on the list of priorities , gotta love Castle Doctrine and stand your ground

    Critial Duty in the 9mm 135g +P. Nobody in my area carries the Critical Duty in 45 yet so for now its golden saber 185g +P.

    I'm fairly certain it's the same thing.

    Zombie Max IS Critical Defense, just with a green plug instead of red.
