Westport, Conn. (June 2018) – 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 John Vlieger won High Overall at the 2018 USPSA Michigan Sectional Championship at the Detroit Sportsmen’s Congress in Utica, Michigan, held June 15 – 17, 2018. Vlieger finished with 1196.4947 match points and a time of 115.44.
“My Shell Shock Technologies NAS3 cases withstood the test of grueling match conditions once again. The temperature peaked at over 95 degrees and even with the sweat, dust and heat, my gear kept running. I’m so glad to be able to take home the win and to have a company like Shell Shock Technologies behind me,” commented Vlieger.
Vlieger has fired over 15,000 rounds of ammunition with Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases since becoming sponsored in 2017 and plans to continue using it.
Vlieger can be seen competing next at the Ryan Rocks Charity Blast in Brighton, Michigan, July 6 – 9, 2018.
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).
