Thread: Rainy Season Hunt

    Rainy Season Hunt

    This is the rainy time of the year in my locale and the low land flooding has saturated the ground around many public sites including the local cemeteries. This has brought on the annual crop of zombies released from the ground as their coffins float to the surface. It's an annual nuisance that the County officials have not been able to keep a handle on. This year, to ease the burden on County workers, the they have issued permits to hunt them and I was lucky enough to draw one. I thought it appropriate that I should select my Ruger 300 "Black Out" for this hunt as the ranges won't be too far but shot placement will be the priority. This little rifle has proven itself to be very accurate out to 300 yards.

    In preparation for the hunt I ordered some Nozler 110 grain "E-RADicator" White Tips as pictured below. Not cheap but worth the premium price in this instance.

    Loaded over a full case of Lil Gun and touched off with a CCI BR-4 primer, these ivory-tipped babies will pop the gourd of any zombie foolish enough to cross my path. The best part is that if I drop my magazine in the dead of night -excuse the pun- I'll be able to find it pretty quick.~Muir

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    What is this fixation that you guys over the pond have with Zombies? There seems to be a whole shooting industry built around it. A bit like the Scots going haggis hunting.

    Well! Obviously the UK isn't plagued by those rancid ba&tards like the US is.
    I don't know what the zombie fascination is. The bullet pictured are factory over runs of a 110 Varmageddon produced by Nosler for a company called Novieski, who markets high dollar specialty ammo. In this case it is their 300 AAC round. I ordered them because they were REALLY inexpensive. What I didn't catch in the advert was that the tips glow in the dark. I was examining the bullets at my kitchen table after work and happened to shut off the light as I left the room. I was pretty shocked to see the bullets glowing green in the dark. It only lasts about 8 minutes so I have no clue what they were trying to accomplish. I don't care if they whistle Dixie as long as they shoot! Anyhow, I loaded fifty and decided to have some fun with them ala photo and zombie yarn. Forgive the late night silliness.~Muir

    That's a good looking little rifle. Must be a hoot to go after prairie dogs with 110-gr out of that thing. When I went to Palmetto Armory last time, they had all kinds of factory ammo for the .300 AAC. It's the rage.
