Seismic Ammo Use Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 Casings

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2021


Seismic™ Ammo’s QuakeMaker™ +M 9mm NATO bullets, featuring Shell Shock Technologies’ casings, are heavier and deliver far greater momentum than any other 9mm.

Westport, Conn. (March 2021) – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early-stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, announces that Seismic™ Ammo has introduced its 185gr 9mm round featuring Shell Shock Technologies’ revolutionary NAS3 casings.

Seismic’s QuakeMaker™ +M 9mm NATO bullets are heavier and deliver far greater momentum than any other 9mm. At subsonic velocities, they’re ideal for suppressors. The QuakeMaker +M projectile is 160 percent the weight of a standard 9mm bullet. It is available in a 21 Round Bonus Pack ($29.99), 21 Round Bonus Pack Full Case ($359.88), and 21 Round Bonus Pack Half Case ($179.94).

“Seismic Ammo is taking conventional ammunition in a different direction. We believe a projectile with more mass traveling at subsonic velocities (900 – 1,000 fps depending on the barrel length) is more effective than a lighter weight projectile traveling at a higher speed,” said Matt Wilkes, Chief Operating Officer of Seismic Ammo.

“We are thrilled and honored to have our innovative NAS3 casings be a part of Seismic Ammo’s take on a heavier 9mm projectile,” said Craig Knight, CEO of Shell Shock Technologies.

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).

NATO Standardizes FN’s 5.7x28mm Caliber

Monday, March 1st, 2021

(McLean, VA – March 1, 2021) FN America, LLC is pleased to announce that the FN-designed 5.7x28mm caliber has been standardized by NATO. The caliber was designed in the late 1980s for use with the FN P90® and FN Five-seveN® pistol. With almost three decades of trusted use, the FN 5.7x28mm continues to leverage the groundbreaking design to improve range, accuracy and terminal performance from small arms. As NATO adds the FN 5.7x28mm to their standard small caliber ammunition portfolio, FN proudly continues its long legacy of small arm innovation as it enhances service to civilians, law enforcement, and militaries across the globe.

In a continuous effort to promote interchangeability of all small caliber ammunition used by allied armed forces, NATO has recently finalized the standardization process of the FN®-designed 5.7x28mm caliber by approving the standardization agreement (STANAG) 4509.

The 5.7x28mm caliber is now integrated into the Multi-Caliber Manual Of Proof and Inspection (AEP-97) and joins the standardized NATO small caliber ammunition portfolio, along with the 9x19mm NATO, the 5.56x45mm NATO, the 7.62x51mm NATO and the 12.7x99mm NATO (also widely known as the .50 caliber).

As a NATO standardized caliber, the 5.7x28mm provides armies with the guarantee of interchangeability between ammunition from different manufacturers and operational efficiency in weapons of this caliber.

Coming after the FN®-designed 5.56x45mm and 7.62x51mm calibers which were standardized by NATO in 1957 and 1981 respectively, this new NATO standardization confirms FN Herstal’s leading position as a designer and manufacturer of small caliber weapon-ammunition systems. It also reinforces the company’s strategy and dedication to provide modern-day armed forces and security forces all across the world with the best performing and efficient small caliber ammunition concepts and designs.
