Rare Zombie Max™ Ammo Plant being auctioned to benefit USA Shooting Team

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (April 16, 2012)

Rare Zombie Max™ Ammo PlantHornady Manufacturing® is offering a unique opportunity to bid on a rare Zombie Max™ Ammo Plant in an online auction, with all proceeds benefiting the USA Shooting Team competing in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.

The online auction will be held on http://www.GunBroker.com from April 13 through April 29, 2012. Bidders can also get a first hand look at the Zombie Max™ Ammo Plant in the Hornady® booth #1831 at the NRA Show, April 13-15, 2012, in St. Louis, Missouri. The winning bidder will be notified immediately after the auction closes.

The features of this reloader are identical to the brand new Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Ammo Plant, with one key difference. The Zombie Max™ version has been designed to complement Hornady’s limited-time Zombie Max™ ammunition. Its green paint and “zombified” graphics were crafted by Hornady® Tool Division workers. They created these presses as a surprise for the company’s President and Vice President, Steve and Jason Hornady, as a way to build excitement for the release of the Zombie Max™ line. The Hornadys are offering one for public auction, with all proceeds supporting the USA Shooting team. Details about the tool’s features and technical abilities can be found on the Hornady® website at http://www.hornady.com/store/Lock-N-Load-Ammo-Plant-110-VT. The retail version of the Lock-N-Load® Ammo Plant sells for $1,330.

“We thought this would be a fun, unique, and functional way for reloading enthusiasts to participate in the zombie craze that is currently so popular,” said Steve Hornady, “while helping the USA Shooting team in their quest for Olympic gold this summer. It’s an honor for us to be able to support the team in this way.”
