3. I offer this background information about Hornaday & Zombie ammo

Hornady Manufacturing Company produces mostly high grade hunting, competition. and LEO ammo. It also sells components and reloading equipment. Its trade dress is red and white, including the red soft nose inserts on its hunting rounds

Steve Hornady (grandson of the founder) is a big Scifi fan and did the Zombie line originally as a joke, figuring he would not sell much of it and priced it accordingly. It was just new packaging and changing the red soft points for green. It went viral well in excess of what anyone thought. Another company (MTM) started making a matching plastic ammo can (seen them on campus a few times). The Zombie line was at least as expensive as their regular stuff since it is their regular higher end ammo done special.

I will admit to having purchased some to give a gifts to some of my prepper friends. I have never used any.
