Zombies in the Heartland a

40-10-3The history started in 2010 with the first season of the Walking Dead, that became a huge hit on the AMC cable channel. 

The world had suddenly become fascinated with surviving the Zombie Apocalypse. 

Perhaps no one was more fascinated than Steve Hornady, who ordered up batches of Z-Max ammo, designed for killing zombies, and threw Hornady support behind creating a Zombie Hunting 3-gun match, Zombies in the Heartland.


40-10-111 years later, the final season of the Walking Dead is losing audience, and Z-Max ammo has gone away,

But the Zombies in the Heartland Match continues to be a fun and colorful weekend of competition in Grand Island Nebraska as 300 shooters come back for another year of zombie hunting on new stages of fire that are both creative and challenging for killing zombies.
