You don't. Silver bullets are for werewolves, and depending on who you ask, sometimes witches. With zombies anything works so long as you inflict enough trauma to the head.
Sound advice indeed but if I may inquire:
From a diversification standpoint, is it better to have specific weapons and ordinance prepared for each type of mythical threat one might face, or is it preferable, in a tactical sense of not having to choose in the heat of the moment, to use whatever might have the widest range of applicability?
After all, it should be possible to damage a zombie's head with a silver bullet just as well as with a (for example) zinc one, as long as you've corrected the charge to account for the mass and range, shouldn't it? And mightn't the differential cost be worth it, depending on how you value the time you would otherwise spend collecting, cataloging, and choosing amongst your other weaponry?
Or, to put it another way, and to obfuscate my path back to topic, when it comes to silver bulleting is there really
such thing as an investment?
