Now this choice is a no-brainer. Unless you aren’t very disciplined when it comes to the concept of using semi, instead of giggle, you’ll find that this gun is an excellent choice. When you’re faced with a horde of zombies you don’t want to waste ammo and since it is durable, handy and lightweight it’s an ideal weapon to use against a horde of zombies, regardless if it’s for long range or short range targets.
2) Heckler & Koch G3
The Heckler is regarded as being a very dependable rifle which is commonly used in most European countries. It also operates on a rolling-block system. What this means is that unlike other rifles there’s no reason to disassemble in. Meaning for instance, unlike an M4 carbine which needs to be continuously clean because of the carbon build-up, this rifle can be used continuously without any instances of a jam. It also has an amazing accuracy at 1,500 yards and uses a .308 round.
3) Remington 870 Express 12 Gauge
Even though the 12 gauge shotgun is a common gun that you would find in various zombie movies, there’s a very good reason why this is the case. It simply provides a multitude of benefits that could prove to be handy during a zombie apocalypse. For starters you could use it on the run to either slow down or stop a horde of zombies. You could also grab some breaching rounds so that you could breach doors on the go.
4) Remington Model 798 Bolt Action Hunting Rifle
When it comes to conducting some good sniper action against a horde of zombies, a good bolt action rifle such as the 798 would be an excellent choice. Some of the neat accessory that could be attached to this gun include a scope and a suppressor which would be perfect when it comes to reaching out and dispatching them at ranges of up to 400 yards.
The AK-47 cartridge must be doing a good job because it is regarded as being the most common rifle cartridge in the worlds. Time after time, it has proven to be very effective against, objects, animals and people. Needless to say, it would do an excellent job at mowing down zombies. One of the primary reasons why this would also be an excellent choice is the fact that it uses a 7.62 mm round which itself is larger that the bullets that are used with the AR 15/16 as well as the M4 carbine.
