    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. :D

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

    Thanks guys. Yes it is Z Max. I stand corrected. And, you have answered my question.

    We're just pickin' at ya a bit. :p

    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.

    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)
