“My Shell Shock Technologies cases, loaded to +P+ pressures, held up to the heat, humidity and challenge once again down in Florida. I was able to focus on the task at hand and apply myself without equipment worries to drag me down. Here’s to the next challenge!” 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 2018 USPSA Cheely Custom Gunworks Area 5 Handgun Championship, to be held at the Brooklyn Sportsman’s Club in Brooklyn, Michigan, August 1 – 5, 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).
