Very interesting, supposed to be cheaper than brass and reloadable. You can also pick them up with a magnet, sounds very interesting.

This from Ammoland.com...apparently they're struggling to keep up with demand for their cases (no surprise there):

Shell Shock Technologies Launches New Website

Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., a startup technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, announces that it has launched its new website.

“We knew from our early test results that our NAS3 cases would be a hit, but we had no idea… The demand has been overwhelming. The combination of market leading innovation, unsurpassed performance and lower cost is proving to be an unbeatable value proposition. Our new website reflects Shell Shock’s culture and market enthusiasm for our products and is as stunning as our ammunition technology,” said Craig Knight, CEO of Shell Shock Technologies.

The new website has a Product page where web users can view Shell Shock’s latest product offerings and a Technology page where they can learn about the innovative features that make Shell Shock’s products best in class. For those who want to buy, they can visit the Shop Online page where they will soon be able to purchase unloaded cases and reloading tools. For those who want loaded ammunition, they can visit the Where to Buy page to see a list of ammunition manufacturers that are using Shell Shock’s cases. For the latest news, articles featuring Shell Shock’s cases, videos, etc. shooting enthusiasts can visit the Resource Center. Check out the new website at www.shellshocktech.com.

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 with Shell Shock’s custom reloading dies. Testers have reported up to 40 reloads. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully with pressures up to 84k 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 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).

I emailed these guys when they first announced their case technology, and urged them to expand into the 450b case...we'll see if it does any good.
