Go look at the thread I started in General Discussions. It does sound stupid at first, but if you step back and look at it with an open mind in the air of the discussion I presented, it might make a little more sense.

I'm assuming you had a traditional shooting/hunting upbringing. I did. But a lot kids today never go hunting or shooting with a member of their family one time, let alone as a pastime. So they get into video games, zombie stuff glorifies firearms, and they get into firearms that way. So we either call it stupid and shun them and let the anti's use them to fuel gun bans (kids are doing these school shootings using firearms found in video games, etc.) or we take them in and legitimize the craze and make it a real sport like cowboy action shooting --then they get the traditional teachings, safety, competition, etc. When they grow out of it, they may move on to highpower or IPSC, whatever. We get more kids into shooting the right way and take away any emotional arguement the anti's may have gained from it. It may seem unconventional, but think of all the stuff you did that seemed unconventional to your parents. Your music, your dress.

So before I go on forever, just go look at what I wrote over there. The thread is called "Zombies are invading... Our gun culture!?"

I'm not sure myself? Like some kind of "Resident Evil" video game or something? I believe there are those that believe there will be some kind of chemical war that'll turn people into brain sucking zomies that run around killing everyone not effected. Appearantly the only way to kill a zombie & keep it from feeding on your brain & in turn, turning you into said zombie is, decapitation or blowing its head off with some kind of expanding round. It all seem pretty ridiculous but there are some that REALLY believe all this "Zombie" stuff & really go crazy about it. There's even zombie survivalist groups on-line (Just what I've heard) & forums dedicated the topic.

Thus, I can see the marketing aspects of it for ammunition manufacturers for their SD cartridges. "The Zombie cartridge!! Big expansion for blowing heads off!!!" ;)

I figure somebody in Hornady's marketing department with a warped sense of humor--like mine, maybe--came up with the idea. Hey, it sells! Shoot the ammo, save the box for a souvenir...

Enough. Go to the thread in General...
