Shell Shock Technologies Sponsored Shooter John Vlieger Wins High Overall/Open Division at Tennessee Atomic Blast 3

The Tennessee Atomic Blast 3 (2018 Tennessee Sectional) was held Sept. 15 – 16, 2018 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

Westport, Conn. (September 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, has placed High Overall and High Open Division at the Tennessee Atomic Blast 3 (2018 Tennessee Sectional), held in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Sept. 15 – 16, 2018. Vlieger competed against 187 competitors to finish with 1,358.1229 match points with a time of 151.84.

“The Tennessee Atomic Blast 3 (2018 Tennessee Sectional) had heat, humidity, a little rain, and a whole lot of penalties waiting out there. My gear ran top notch, and my Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases put up with the weather, and my abuse, with boring reliability once again. Glad to run the best, and glad to walk away with the win,” commented Vlieger.

Vlieger has fired over 25,000 rounds of ammunition with Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3cases since becoming sponsored in 2017 and plans to continue using it.

Vlieger can be seen competing next at the Target Sports Presents the SNS Indiana Section, to be held at the Central Indiana Practical Shooters in Atlanta, Georgia, Sept. 28 – 30, 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. NAS3cases 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).
