Creedmoor Ammunition in NAS3 casings

Westport, Conn. (July 2016) – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., a startup technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, announces that Creedmoor®’s 9mm ammunition is now available with Shell Shock’s revolutionary NAS3 casings.

“The cases are fantastic. The consistency we’re getting out of them is phenomenal and they function great,” said Dennis DeMille, general manager of Creedmoor Sports and co-inventor of the Creedmoor round.

Creedmoor’s new 9mm round starts with a Shell Shock NAS3 case filled with a +P load and topped off with a Hornady® XTP 124 grain bullet. The rounds have a muzzle velocity of 1175 FPS and 380 ft.-lbs. of energy.

“We’re excited to partner with Creedmoor. Their innovations in ammunition have completely changed the face of competitive shooting. It’s fitting that they’re one of the early adopters of NAS3, the first breakthrough in case technology in decades,” said Craig Knight, CEO of Shell Shock Technologies.

NAS3 Casings

NAS3 alloy cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases offering 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 with Shell Shock’s custom reloading dies. Testers have reported up to 40 reloads. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully with pressures up to 65k 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).
