same exact ammo as the v-max
I've been running these and the 55 grain v-max round for years. No issues or fte/ftf in my AR 15. Usuallynthese are cheaper than the standard v-max rounds. Hornady makes all around good products!
Showy and fun. (There are no undead, people!)
good old Hornady rounds, period. Seriously, I would hope that any buyer would understand that these are no more than a standard round in a fun package, which is precisely what they were meant to be. In all honesty, I would have bought the empty box for the price of admission, just for fun. I picked up 10 boxes as gifts, and everyone loved the gimmick. Some things are just for fun. Enjoy!
ok but not great
Designed especially for penetrating (zombie skin)? When is the last time you ever saw or touched a zombie? How does Hornady know what zombie skin feels like and how tough it is or isn't? This round is a gimmick and has no real affect ballistics wise at 150 / 200 / 250 / 300 meters. .223 and the 5.56 are solid rounds and will do the job you need them to do. I think Hornady has a contract with the umbrella corporation.
Tight group, but a little too expensive
No problems, no jams, or misfires. I shot 10 rounds into a fist size area at about 50 yds with my AR-15, saving the rest for the zombies I guess. The bullets look cool with the green tips too.
Marketing Ploy = Decreased Value/Performance
So, I fell for it. I broke down a bought "Zombie Certified Ammo." I should have known from marketing ploys I fell for as a child that the more marketing a product requires, the higher end cost will be for the consumer in relation to the actual value of the product.
I shot this ammo with a Steyr A3, which had only 100 rounds of Hornady "223 REM 55 gr SP Brass Training" through it flawlessly from the weapon's time of purchase. I brought my new A3 over to my Uncle farm to shoot over new years an brought along the "Z-Max" ammo as a surprise, thinking it would add a bit more fun factor.
. . . And it turned out to be just embarrassing. I loaded ten rounds into one magazine. The first round fired fine, the second fed well, fired and the "chunk." It didn't extract, and I ended up with a double feed. Ok, I should have tossed it all there. But no, I fixed the issue and placed the magazine of the remaining seven rounds in and the exact same process occurred exactly as it did before TWO MORE TIMES!
Needless to say, I simply tossed the remaining 11 rounds.
