NRA’s Shooting Sports USA, the leading publication for the competitive shooting community, devoted their entire front cover to an image of Shell Shock’s NAS3 cases, and questioned whether brass’s 150-year reign was over. In the article, Shooting Sports USA set out evaluate Shell Shock Technologies’ claims about its NAS3 casings. The result confirmed the industry-leading performance of Shell Shock’s cases.
“Half the weight lightens our range bags, and we can sweep up fired cases with a magnet. Plus there’s the simple ‘cool factor’ of unique-looking ammo.”
Shell Shock’s NAS3 9mm cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases, offer greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear-out or damage breach and ejector mechanisms. The cases offer greater corrosion resistance, tensile strength (2x stronger) and elasticity than brass.
NAS3 cases will not split, chip, crack or grow (stretch) and are fully-reloadable (using S3 Reload dies) and can be reloaded many more times than brass cases. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully by customers to pressures over 70k psi. NAS3 cases eject cool to-the-touch and can be picked up with a magnet. The head can be colored for branding purposes and easy load identification.
NAS3 is “Best in Class” for maintaining consistent velocity between rounds. In an independent test performed by H.P. White Laboratory (a major munitions testing facility), rounds fired using NAS3 cases achieved a velocity standard deviation of 0.093 FPS (124 grain FMJ bullet, 4.2 grains Titegroup powder, 10 rounds, extreme variation 3fps).
