Shell Shock NAS3 Cases Go Face The 1,000-Round Torture Test

Shell Shock Technologies tested its revolutionary NAS3 cases in a 1,000-round torture test and the results were flawless. Through 1,000 rounds fired of L-Tec 9mm FMJ with Shock Technology’s NAS3 cases through an Angstadt Arms UDP-9, there were zero ammunition failures or malfunctions.

“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,” said Curtis Hallstrom of VSO Gun Channel, who performed the test. “Well, we shot 1,000 rounds today; a lot of people won’t shoot 1,000 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.”

Shell Shock’s new cases are reported to be 50 percent lighter than brass. The lighter weight offers greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear out or damage breach and ejector mechanism. The cases also have greater corrosion resistance and a tensile strength and electricity twice as much as brass. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully to pressures over 70,000 psi.
