Westport, Conn. (June 2019) – 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 its sponsored shooter, Garrett Schutz, placed first and second overall in the Open and 2×4 Divisions at the MSA 3 Gun Competition, held at the MSA Rifle & Pistol Range on June 15, 2019, in Midland, Texas. Schutz finished with 364.1026 match points and a time of 219.44 in the Open Division and 358.2014 match points and a time of 207.40 in the 2×4 Division. Videos of the match can be seen on Schutz’s Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/garrettschutz/.
“Getting to the starting beep I’ve wondered in the past if my ammunition choice was going to let me down. Since switching to Shell Shock Technologies 9mm NAS3 cases about 10 months ago I’ve never had to worry. They always have worked through my Atlas Gunworks 2011 and Cobalt Kinetics PCC, as well as every gun I’ve run them through. Can’t wait for more products from Shell Shock Technologies to become available to eliminate second-guessing in 223 for my 3-gun events,” commented Schutz.
Schutz can be seen competing next at the SJWF 3-Gun Nation Club Trophy Match, to be held at the San Juan Wildlife Federation Range on June 29, 2019, in Farmington, New Mexico.
About Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 Cases:
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).
