With all the news stories about flesh-eating zombies, Americans are doing what they do best: buying ammo, specifically, zombie bullets.
Hornady Manufacturing is marketing 'Zombie Max' bullets on their web site with enticing ad copy such as: “Be PREPARED – supply yourself for the Zombie Apocalypse with Zombie Max ammunition from Hornady! Loaded with PROVEN Z-Max bullets… MAKE DEAD PERMANENT!”
There is even a 'Zombie Max' bullets video (below) that would make George Romero proud.
Company spokesman Everett Deger told WWJ Newsradio 950 that these Zombie Max bullets are meant for targets, not people [living or dead]: “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."
“This is probably one of the only [product] launches that we’ve seen when people who are not in the hunting and shooting industry will go out and they will purchase this. I mean, I’ve heard of guys who buy it just because they think the packaging is cool and they set it on their cube and they don’t even own a gun."
