“The 2019 Mississippi Classic was a movement intensive technical match with everything from 40-yard shots to a mop on 11 courses of fire. From sunshine to a thunderstorm, 25 – 100 percent humidity changes, and 55-90-degree temperature shifts, my equipment ran true throughout. My ammo loaded in Shell Shock Technologies’ cases ran flawlessly in the pouring rain the same as in the dry heat, and I couldn’t ask for better reliability. When you’re shooting 5,000 rounds a month to stay competitive, there is no room for questionable ammunition, and Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases keep me focused on the targets, not on my gear. Here’s to preparing for the next challenge!” commented Vlieger.
Vlieger has fired over 55,000 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 2019 Ohio State USPSA Cheely Custom Gunworks BUCKEYE BLAST, to be held May 31 – June 2, 2019, in Zanesville, Ohio.
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).
