The VSO Gun Channel performed the torture test by continuously firing L-Tech 9mm FMJ with Shell Shock Technologies NAS 3 cases through an Angstadt Arms UDP-9.
Westport, Conn. (November 2016) – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early-stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, announces that its revolutionary NAS3 cases passed a 1,000 round torture test with zero ammunition related failures or malfunctions. In the torture test, Curtis Hallstrom of the VSO Gun Channel continuously fired 1,000 rounds of L-Tech 9mm FMJ with Shell Shock Technology’s NAS3 cases through an Angstadt Arms UDP-9.
“Shell Shock’s new NAS3 two-piece casings are unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and with any new technology I always want to see for myself if the manufacturer’s claims are true. Shell Shock says its cases are stronger and more reliable than brass. Well, we shot one thousand rounds today; a lot of people won’t shoot a thousand rounds in a year and we did not have a single case separation or ammunition related malfunction. From a reliability standpoint, these new casings are flawless. I give Shell Shock Technologies two thumbs way up,” said Hallstrom.
Shell Shock Technologies 1000 Round Test
NAS3 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 also 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 with S3 Reload dies. Customers have reported being able to reload NAS3 cases many more times than brass cases. A video can be found on Shell Shock’s website showing 9mm Luger NAS3 cases being reloaded 32 times using S3 Reload dies.
NAS3 cases have been tested successfully to pressures over 70k psi. NAS3 cases eject cool to-the-touch and can be picked up with a magnet. The head can be colored for branding purposes and easy load identification.
NAS3 cases are “Best in Class” for maintaining consistent velocity between rounds. In an independent test performed by H.P. White Laboratory (a major munitions testing facility), 9mm rounds fired using NAS3 cases achieved a velocity standard deviation of 0.93 fps (124 grain FMJ bullet, 4.2 grains Titegroup powder, 10 rounds, extreme variation 3fps).
