Hornady of Grand Island, Nebraska has produced premium ammunition loading components since 1949, acting as a key supplier to many other ammunition loaders. The 1990s marked a major strategy shift for the company as it began introducing its own brand of self-defense and hunting ammunition including the humorously named Zombie Max line.
The idea for Zombie Max originated with company president Steve Hornady, son of founder J.W. Hornady, who, after exhaustive research of past zombie disasters documented in works such as “Dawn of the Dead” and “World War Z,” concluded existing preparations for a potential zombie apocalypse were inadequate. To prevent a repeat of prior experiences in which would-be survivors wasted vast quantities of FMJ ammo in a vain attempt to stop the horde, Zombie Max ammo comes only in hollow-point (available for many popular rifle and pistol calibers) and buckshot varieties.
