    hornady zombie max any good?

    saw the hornady zombie max ammo at my local gs the other day and was told by the owner it supposed to be the new big thing in sd ammo. the specs look similar if not the same to some of their other ammo so im wondering if its just marketing? any input is appreciated.

    It is the same as their Critical Duty ammo but in green. Marketing difference only.

    Actually it's the same as the Critical Defense line, not the Critical Duty line.

    It can only be used on Zombies. It will not kill the living, only the un-dead.

    Yep it is the same stuff with a green tip. Was a "fun" marketing ploy. The stores around here sell it cheaper then the regular, so I picked up several boxes.

    I was actually wondering about that. If you were to use the Zombie Max ammo in SD, could they use that against you?

    This is from the Hornady website.
    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!

    It's a gimmick marketing ploy that may get a defensive shooting a whole new set of problems when gimmick ammo is used.

    It works best when being shot from zombie green guns. The bullets make ER doctors wonder if they should bother patching them up since they're already dead.

    I have seen it, read the box and picked my usual golden sabers. I am not into gimmicks.

    I've watched all those Zombie Movies & a few episodes of the new TV show, so I'm pretty sure that qualifies me as an expert. If you're concerned about a Zombie Home Invasion or Zombie Car Jacking, Hornady recommends Green Box. If living human beings are still the primary threat in your travels, stick with Critical Defense or XTP.
