No fear, any large bludgeoning object [cricket paddle, etc] can be used to disable hippies/zombies/stoners.

Is FMJ good against zombies?  I would think you would want less penetration and more expansion.

I prefer large caliber hollow-tip for zombie destruction.  Works pretty well on hippies, too.



Realistically for any large mammal (humans or quasi-humans, such as hippies or zombies included) you want a better performing round- 7.62, or ideally 6.8 SPC .

That being said, since neither zombies nor hippies are likely to engage you from more than a few feet away, 12 gauge slugs are by far the most satisfying to hit 'em with. Sort of a flesh explosion.

Would you reccomend using the staple anti-zombie tool of a 12 guage with buckshot?

If so, what choke setting?


i would use full.

8mm mauser. since zombies usually come at you in droves, take a bunch out with some good penetration. good ol 38 also, just in case.

mausers work good fore hippies too. need a good round to get through their thick skulls...

 

edit: HAH! i have 1337 posts!

carry on.

I think it would be the single funniest thing of the day if a mod were to set his post count to 1336.9. That being said, I'm sure it only takes integers. :(

FMJ isn't ideal, given it's a "ball" round, it doesn't allow for any expansion and is prone to over penetration. It will, however, fragment... so it has that advantage over current issue 62gr steel-core FMJ.
The polymer tip on the VMAX rounds provide for devastating expansion.

Either one will take out zombies, but might need a double-tap with the FMJ.

I have another 1700rds of FMJ and 800rds of HP at home. Plus almost 1000rds of mixed FMJ/HP 9mm should the zombie/hippie count run high enough to exhaust rifle ammo (a possibility here in NoVA).

I'd like higher caliber... a 7.62 with .45ACP backup would be sweet... but need to stick with what I have and stockpile ammo, rather than have more guns with nothing to feed them.

4:20pm I should just be turning onto Connecticut Ave in DC... can't have a firearm with me in the district... might be a problem. Hopefully I can make it home in time to beat the zombie/hippie crowd before they leave the confines of their basements in search of food. If I can't make it to the house before the munchies set in...

Ball rounds are just referring to the powder used.
The military uses ball powder instead of stick powder because it burns faster and is more efficient over time.
Stick powders tend to lose "punch" over time. As well as being a slower burning powder. Shotgun powders and cannon powders are stick powders.
/endrant

I agree about the Vmax. It is an incredible bullet for varmint hunting. Probably be very effective against hippies and whatever else also.
If you reload, try the 77grain boattail Vmax. We use the 77grain boattail solid tip very effectively out to about 600yards in the AR15.
The military (specifically Marine Marksmenship Team) uses 77 grain rounds when shooting long range at Camp Perry. That is where I learned about it. The larger projectile is less affected by the wind. It also delivers more energy to the target due to the increase in mass. Which is always good when hunting hippies and zombies
