Comparison of the Common Pistol Calibers
Intro This report shows some of the most basic ballistics of our favorite pistol calibers. This data isn’t the only factor when choosing a new handgun, or maybe which caliber you’d like to stock the most for, but it should start you on your way

Mosin Nagant 7.62x54
In my opinion, the Mosin Nagant and other Bolt action rifles have no use in the zombie defense field. If you have enough time to get an accurate shot with a large rifle, you can get away. But! The rifle itself is a nice weapon. They're very cheap and pretty reliable. Also quite accurate. It's also very easy to clean and disassemble. You can also easily turn it into a grenade launcher with a 2liter coke bottle and some blank cartridges. It's a good gun for hunting but not for protection. It would be good to have to get food though.
The amount of available calibers can often be confusing and overwhelming to new shooters; as such, this article aims to do a quick overview of the capabilities of various common handgun and rifle calibers (in ascending order of size, rather than pow

The Mosin-Nagant rifle was designed at the very tail end of the 19th century, and was produced by Russia as The 3-Line Rifle, Model 1891 . It was produced in a variety of different configurations (M1891/30, M38, and M44, and later M91/59)

2nd Tier Ammo May Be a Better Choice.
(Note: This probably belongs in weapons and gear, but more people will read it if it's in GD.)
I always hear people saying that you should use a VERY common (i.e. 1st Tier) caliber in a SHTF scenario. Something like a 9mm or .45. Well, I thought about it; it's common for a reason. When stuff starts going down, everyone and their brother will be looking for stuff like those.
Therefore, I was thinking it may be better to use a 2nd Tier caliber. One that is still pretty common, but not one that EVERYBODY has. So, wanna help me make a list?
1st Tier calibers:
Now, some good 2nd Tier calibers:
7mm Rem. Magnum
.300 Win. Magnum

-Everyone"Shoot them in the head." -Me"Which part?"
So I'm posting because lately I've had a concern that I feel should be brought to the attention of anyone browsing around these threads. So does anyone know which part of the head you're actually supposed to shoot to disable a zed? It started out with me considering different caliber size in the recent top 10 handguns poll. So I was considering a comparison of handgun calibers, specifically Five-Seven, 9mm, and .45. Naturally a .45 will leave a pretty damn big hole in a zed head to bring it down. But I'm more a 9mm preference for my own reason, and I'm worried if the bullet will disable the part of the brain that matters. So, I'm no brain surgeon but I'm guessing the part that relates to motor control is the target, whatever the hell part that may be. So if we could compile a bit of light research to confirm and pinpoint our targets, it may just save my life and your own.
Any comments, criticism, opinions, anything of the sort would be appreciated to make sure that a zombie is dead. Or if you'd rather just blaze me over the internet because my idea is a bit stupid or pointless, well go ahead and do that too.

I would surely use a .22 Rimfire. Allow me to explain why:
-Ammo is very common
-If a headshot is scored, the bullet will go inside the skull but NOT OUT. It will ricochet around in the zombie's skull and rip apart the brain. HAHA
