Default Hornady Z Mac: Does anyone know?

Does anyone know if or when the Hornady Z Mac bullets will be available for reloading? I can find loaded ammo for sale but not the bullets. Or, did I miss something?

Are you referring to the Z MAX? Its is nothing more than the 'critical defense" bullet from hornady... just a different color.

It took a while for the LeverEvolution bullets to hit the streets after the ammo was released, I'm guessing it will take the same for the Z-Max. Being as zombies are fictional characters in movies and this ammo is recommended only for dealing with zombies, it really doesn't matter.

As UrbanNinja mentioned, it's just the change in polymer tip color from one of their other bullets.

We're just pickin' at ya a bit.

I do remember having to wait quite a while before the LeverEvolution bullets were available to reloaders. However, I just received an e-mail from Hornady regarding the Z-Max bullets. They may not have the caliber you're looking for as there's not too many listed yet, but it looks like they'll be available a lot sooner than the LeverEvolution bullets were.

Hornady Manufacturing Company :: New Products :: Bullets :: Z-MAX™

P.S. I'm glad you brought this up. While surfing Honady's site I see they now have the Critical Defense rounds for my CZ82. (9mm Makarov)
