Hornady Z-Max - #00 Buck - 12 Gauge Ammo - 10 Rounds
No matter how popular John Wayne’s six guns may have ever been, it is in fact the shotgun that won the West. Whether by Doc Holiday at the OK Corral or homesteaders needing a firearm cure all, the qualities of the scatter gun serves today just as well as it did then. As a close range personal or home defense caliber, the 12 gauge also continues to serve with a surety that many find a comfort, the 2.75” 12 ga Z-Max shell by Hornady launches approximately twelve 8mm pellets at 1600 feet per second, and while that energy does dissipate relatively rapidly, in an open choked barrel the shot expands to increase the chance of scoring at least a glancing hit further down range. In close quarters, however, it remains a truly devastating caliber.
Hornady began making its own high end sporting and defensive ammunition in the 1960’s. Since that time they are virtually universally recognized as providing a quality product that lawmen and civilians alike rely upon when each shot might count. The limited edition Z-Max branding is Hornady’s nod to popular culture as well as an admission that there is little reason to not have a little fun when buying shot shells.
