“The Area 3 Championship consisted of 14 stages in beautiful Grand Island with 50-yard targets, shooting from the inside of vehicles, and filled with constant challenges. Another Area Championship said and done with zero malfunctions with my choice equipment, and another trip completed without the worry of equipment failure. I continue to use Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 cases because they ease my mind, and let me focus on the task in front of me,” 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. He can be seen competing next at the 2019 EGW Area 8 Championship, to be held Aug. 22 – 25, 2019, at the Ontelaunee Rod and Gun Club in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania.
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).
