Shell Shock Technologies will be supplying Vlieger with its NAS3 cases for his competitions during 2017.

Shell Shock TechnologiesWestport, Conn. (August 2017) – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, is pleased to announce it is an official sponsor of John Vlieger. Shell Shock Technologies will be supplying Vlieger with its NAS3 cases for his competitions in 2017.

Vlieger began seriously competing in the action shooting sports in mid-2014 while stationed at Fort Richardson, Alaska. When relocated by the Army to Fort Campbell, Kentucky, Vlieger found easier access to the larger matches across the Eastern United States and competed in over 15 major pistol events in 2015. Initially focused on Limited Division with iron sights, Vlieger found his calling in Open Division. He has since completed over 30 state, regional or national level matches with titles from Alabama State and the Indiana 400, as well as an 11th place finish at U.S. Nationals. Vlieger plans to compete at over 18 competitions in 2017.

“I’m 5,000 rounds in and Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases have passed every test I can throw at them in competition shooting,” remarked Vlieger. “Easy to pick up with a magnet, stronger than any pistol case has a right to be and durable as all get out; these qualities make them a go-to for my competition shooting, and I couldn’t be happier to partner with Shell Shock Technologies in 2017. Being able to represent them on and off the range is something I greatly look forward to, and I can’t wait to show people what these unique silver cases have to offer.”

Vlieger can be seen competing next at the USPSA Area 3 Championship, to be held in Grand Island, Nebraska, Aug. 4 – 6, 2017.

About Shell Shock’s NAS3 Cases:

Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 casesShell 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 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).
