Is this a real Hornady ad, or someone's parody? If it's a real add, Hornady should be commended for injecting a dose of humor into a topic that is all too often, all too serious.

Thank God, now I don't have to make due with non-zombie ammunition for the Zombie Apocalypse.  This has really been keeping me up at night.

LOL midsouth's warehouse is right up the street from the house we just moved from-
you can walk in, order, wait around for 15 minutes and walk out with your stuff!

I stumbled upon this on Thursday/Friday morning from ITS and thought it was a joke, still kinda do, because this is too awesome to be true and I haven't seen anything on the shelves yet.  But they have updated their website and added the details that's been going around other web sites:

http://www.hornady.com/in-the-news/latest-news/zombie-max-ammunition

Nice common caliber selection.

I am curious to know more about the ammo.  I know they say this is real ammo, but is it just a plinker type ammo that's just for the joke (which I love, and think it's a great idea... that will bring great profit) or does this have real qualities to work with?

If I had to guess,I would say this is critical defense and A-max loaded ammo

This page has the velocity and energy info for comparison.  I didn't check it against any of their more traditional offerings.

168 gr .308 load seems to be identical to the 168 gr TAP load but without the nickel plated case.

I think with zombies you want FMJ's - that way potential over-penetration may take out more than one zombie at a time. Gotta conserve ammo you know, there's a lot of zombies out there.

To play 6* of Kevin Bacon - Steve Johnson (Creator of Ka-Bar's JAB knives) used to work for Hornady, now works for Ka-Bar. Ka-Bar just launched a line of zombie themed knives. Now Hornady releases zombie ammo.... now, where does Kevin Bacon fit in - the JAB knives are called "Baconmakers".
