Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 Casings Used in New Ammunition Line, NovX Ammunition

NovX Ammunition, featuring Shell Shock Technologies’ casings, is lighter, faster, flies flatter and with less recoil.

Westport, Conn. (October 2017) – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, announces that NovX Ammunition has introduced the most effective, lethal combination of bullet technology in more than a century with the introduction of its 9mm ammunition featuring Shell Shock Technologies’ revolutionary NAS3 casings.

NovX’s new patent-pending 9mm ARX® Engagement: Extreme Self-Defense cartridges combine the innovative properties of a polycarbonate/copper ARX bullet with the Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 casing. The bullet design is a proven platform that leads to highly efficient energy transfer, superior terminal performance, controlled penetration in fluid-based targets and optimum maximum range to lessen the chance of collateral damage. The ammunition produces 20 to 30 percent higher velocity over standard ammunition while reducing felt recoil by 20 to 30 percent and providing a 40 to 60 percent weight reduction versus standard ammunition.

The NovX 9mm RNP® CrossTrainer was developed in conjunction with the 9mm ARX Engagement cartridge utilizing the Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 casing combined with the round nose projectile bullet instead of the ARX profile. With nearly identical weights and velocities as the 9mm ARX Engagement round, the RNP CrossTrainer is an excellent choice for training, competition and recreational shooting.

“We are truly excited and proud to have our casings be part of the launch of the NovX ammunition line. With a bullet that is lighter, faster and flies flatter, combined with lower recoil, NovX seems poised to set the ammo world on fire,” said Craig Knight, CEO of Shell Shock Technologies.

 About Shell Shock’s NAS3 Cases:

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 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).
