Westport, Conn. ( – Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early-stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, announces that S&M Ammunition has introduced its 9mm 115 gr FMJ round featuring Shell Shock Technologies’ revolutionary NAS3 casings.

S&M Ammunition

The 9mm FMJ (not plated) S&M Ammunition total cartridge weighs 115 grains and is available in a box of 50 rounds for $19.00. The rounds are currently out of stock on S&M Ammunition’s website due to shortages caused by COVID-19 but expect to be back in stock shortly.

“We are excited to be offering ammunition using Shell Shock Technologies’ cases and look forward to increasing our ammunition line with other calibers in the future”, said Jay Slaughter, co-founder of S&M Ammunition.

“We are truly excited and proud to have our groundbreaking NAS3 casings be a part of S&M Ammunition’s line up,” said Craig Knight, CEO of Shell Shock Technologies.

About Shell Shock’s NAS3 Cases:

Shell Shock Technologies 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 in comparison to brass. NAS3 cases will not split, chip, crack, or grow (stretch).  They 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).

Honestly, the shortage is simply a matter of the allocation to the consumer markets being throttled to ensure contract orders can be filled. The manufactures with military contracts are not short on components and are not back ordering to any Law Enforcement or Military procurement.


So the loaded round uses a 115gr bullet and, “The 9mm FMJ (not plated) S&M Ammunition total cartridge weighs 115 grains.” Yes, that Laura Burgess group is on the ball.
As noted below, is that $19.00 per fifty reflective of the current shortage or the normal price?
In the mean time I’ll just keep loading my regular brass 9mm like I am doing with 400 pieces of brass today. With a 104gr cast RN at 1250fps out of my G19. That load is very accurate.


not plated? Does this mean that they shouldn’t be used in a Sig?


Jacketed as in FMJ = full metal jacket. Not plated.


Need new dies is the deal breaker for me… UNLESS I only use ONE caliber of their cases.

I would rather just buy the cases and load my own.
Oh. Wait. New set of dies. Never Mind.
Brass is probably cheaper and I have the dies for that.

A stock notification would be nice

Covid shortages? Lol that was yesterday.
Mmm how bout civil disruption and possible impending civil war shortages.
Be honest.


Sounds interesting! God bless them for putting their ammo in 50 round boxes!!!! Please let us know when their stock is 10-8 as I would like to order a couple of boxes for T & E. Cases look kinda like a “belted” rifle cartridge.
