Worried about recent bouts of rampant cannibalism? Fearing an onslaught of the undead? Well, fear not: you can now prepare for Zombiegeddon with a new line of specially engineered zombie bullets — while supplies last.
Hornady Manufacturing Company, a Nebraska-based ammunition maker, is promoting its line of Z-Max zombie bullets as “specifically designed to vaporize zombie varmints.” Since killing zombies, as everyone knows, requires taking out the brain, the Z-Max line boasts “Ultra-flat trajectories [that] send mangy menaces to the varmint graveyard.” These bullets are built, as Hornady’s website puts it, to “make dead permanent.”
But before you rush out to fill your survival bunker with special anti-zombie ammunition, please note that the product’s more of a gimmick than anything else.
The Observer reportsthat the bullets are mostly a product of company owner Steve Hornady’s affection for zombie flicks, plus a dash of clever marketing and some good timing. Company spokesperson Everett Deger took pains to tell a Detroit-based radio station that the ammunition is to be used only on targets, and definitely not on people — undead or otherwise.
