Fallout Ammunition 9mm Now Using Shell Shock Technologies’ NAS3 Casings

Shell Shock Technologies, LLC., an early-stage technology and manufacturing company focused on developing innovative case technologies for the ammunition industry, announces that Fallout Ammunition’s 9mm rounds are now available with Shell Shock’s revolutionary NAS3 casings.

“We discovered Shell Shock during our continued search to find the best components for Fallout’s ammunition line. The technology was intriguing. Though we were skeptical about deviating from traditional brass cartridge casings, we ordered a few test pieces to load up and take to the range. As we put these rounds through the paces we noticed that our groupings were tighter, our guns were lighter and even the sounds of the discharging cartridges were more satisfying,” commentedDarren Johnson, Fallout Ammunition.

Johnson continued, “using our chronograph substantiated Shell Shock’s claims as the tested rounds showed a much more consistent velocity versus standard brass casings. Due to our positive testing experience, we decided to use Shell Shock’s casings exclusively for our new product line. Since using Shell Shock cases, we have had many compliments about how well these rounds fire and many of our customers have told us that they have also become believers in the superiority of Shell Shock’s case technology.”

“We’re excited to partner with Fallout Ammunition. They do a great job of delivering exactly what the shooting industry needs: excellent ammunition at competitive prices. Their commitment to quality is outstanding,” remarkedCraig Knight, CEO of Shell Shock Technologies.

NAS3 Technology:
NAS3 alloy cases are 50 percent lighter than brass cases offering 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 S3 reloading dies. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully with pressures over 70k 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 0.93 fps (124 grain FMJ bullet, 4.2 grains Titegroup powder, 10 rounds, extreme variation 3fps).

New Arrivals

“Even though I knew of private gun ownership when I first came to the United States, there was still an emotional disconnect between seeing others own guns and realizing that my parents could. For people from even less RKBA friendly countries than the USSR, such as China, Koreas and Japan, that emotional disconnect may be even greater. So take your immigrant friends shooting. Teach them the safety, and the tactics, and the political history behind the Second Amendment and the preexisting human right it affirms.”
— Oleg Volk

As always, Oleg is an inspiration.

2016 Texas Firearms Festival

Attended the Texas Firearms Festival for the third year in a row over the weekend. Have to say that each year it gets better and better! Lines were very short, and I was able to bounce around from booth to booth all day long. There were a few booths that I visited at least 8+ times during the course of the day. Vendors and manufacturers were very kind and eager to educate folks on their products, which made the whole experience simply wonderful.

Here are a few random pictures from the event, in no particular order:






Out of all the guns I fired at the festival, there is one that I can’t stop thinking about. Manufactured by Battle Rifle Company, the Odin was a dream to shoot. When I had the opportunity to shoot the BRC Odin (chambered in 5.56mm), I was not taken to the standard 100 yard range that other unscoped rifles were taken. To my surprise, I was taken to the 250 yard area of the range. Mind you, the rifle was set up with flip-up iron sights. I sat at the bench and proceed to take my first shot: BOOM…ding! (hit). Second shot: hit! I will admit to being a little excited and giddy, and thus rushed the third shot — my round impacted just above the left shoulder. Fourth round: hit! Fifth round: hit! I’d never shot an AR with iron sights at that distance, and to be able to score 4 out of 5 hits on a torso-sized target took my breath away. Had I been doing my job, I would have easily reached out and touched a target at 250 yards 100% of the time.

I failed to take a photo of the Odin rifle, but happened to find one on BRC’s Facebook page:

Receivers: Forged 7075-T6
Barrel: 14.5″, 5.56mm, 1×7, Carbine Gas Length, Cryo Treated w/ Compact Muzzle Brake
Handguard: 12.5″ Battle Rifle Company HexRail
Trigger: ALG ACT
Sights: Magpul MBUS
Stock: MFT Minimalist
MSRP: $1495

I would be lying right now if I said that I didn’t want a Battle Rifle Company Odin in my collection…

How To Set A Coyote Trap

Coyotes are wary, cautious predators, which can make them very hard to catch. Using coyote calls is a great way bring the predators out of their hiding places, but catching them takes skill. Most will try to eliminate coyotes in an area using traps. However, trapping is difficult to do and success usually comes with tons of practice and patience. Here, we will go over the basic of how to set a coyote trap.

Why Setting the Coyote Trap Properly is Important? 
Many beginner trappers or just trappers in general can get frustrated when they check their traps to see that they’ve been triggered but haven’t caught anything. Most times this is because the trigger wasn’t set properly. Below, we’ll spend some time going over how to properly set a trap trigger and other important information about trapping coyotes. 

Choose Location Carefully 
First off, if you want to catch a coyote with a trap, you have to place the trap where coyotes are common. A coyote trap should never be placed deep in the woods or with a bunch of brush around. Instead, a trap should be placed in an open area near the edge of a field or something similar. 

A great way to find the best location for your trap is to place the trap where coyotes have been seen. To do this, look for coyote traps, they are very easy to recognize, and look for droppings too. It’s best to place a coyote trap right on droppings. 

Use the Right Coyote Trap 
Next, you’ll want to make sure you choose the right trap. Experienced trappers will often choose a #3 or #4 trap. It’s important to check your local hunting regulations to make sure you choose the right trap. No matter what type of trap you choose, it’s important to make sure it has 4 coil springs. 

Anchor Trap to the Ground 
No matter how great your trap is, it won’t do you any good if you forget to anchor it to the ground. What this means is you have to anchor the trap properly to the ground. Make sure the ground near the trap is tough enough to hold an anchor and make sure to pull on the anchor to ensure it stays in the ground. 

Dig Out Shallow Bed for Trap 
After you’ve gathered the trap, found the best location, and anchored the trap to the ground, it’s time to dig out a shallow bed for the trap to rest in. It’s important to dig out the proper bed for the trap, so that it will be flush with the ground. 

Remember, coyotes are clever and if they suspect something strange is going on, they will avoid the area. To prevent tipping off the local coyotes, it’s important to make sure the jaws of the trap are flush with the ground. 

Pack Dirt Around Trap 
Once the trap is set in the ground and in its perfect location, you need to use the loose dirt around the trap and pack it in tightly. You want to pack the dirt around the trap as tightly as possible. 

Use Wax Paper or Plastic Wrap to Cover the Trigger 
After the coyote trap has been placed in the ground, it’s important to make sure you handle setting the trigger carefully. First, use a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap to cover the trigger. Doing this will help it from being triggered simply by wind or small debris falling on it. 

Sift Dirt Over Coyote Trap 
Now, you’re almost ready to set the coyote trap and hope you catch a predator. To do this, sift dirt over the trap. It’s important to sift the dirt over the trap. If you drop dirt too fast or too hard, you could accidentally set off the trap’s trigger. 

Add Lure and Wait 
The last step to setting a coyote trap is to add a lure and just wait. There are many types of coyote lure on the market. It’s up to you, which one you choose. 

Check Coyote Traps Every 24 Hours 
After you’ve set the trigger, buried the trap, and added the lure, it times to just sit back and wait until it’s time to check the traps. Most state regulations will require trappers to check the traps every 24 hours.

If you’re extremely lucky, you’ll catch a coyote in your trap every time you set one. Unfortunately, even the most experienced coyote trappers end up empty handed more than they don’t. Diligence to the process, knowing where to place your traps, and faithfully checking the apparatus will allow you to gain the most success.

10 Tips To Make You A Better Deer Hunter

Ever since our Paleolithic ancestors discovered that hunting wild animals was a fun way of getting a meal, this age-old practice has evolved into a lucrative sport that drives America’s billion dollar optic industry. However, having the best binoculars for hunting and rifle that money can buy does not always translate to success especially in the deer season. In this article, I will be covering some of the essential tips that can transform you into a master deer hunter.

1. Avoid scented soaps
Do you know why our Paleolithic ancestors were extremely successful big game hunters? Well, it’s because they blended exceptionally well with their forest surroundings. Consider this; a deer has 297 million scent receptors in their nose while we have a meager 5 million scent receptors. Therefore, a deer’s sense of smell is 500 to 1000 times better than yours. Not a fair fight right? Well, to even the playing fields, avoid showering with scented soaps before going deer hunting. Also, keep your hunting clothes tightly sealed in a zip lock back containing leaves, dirt and other forest debris. This will help you mask your human smell.

2. Be very still
Do not make the mistake of scooping large areas of the forest, instead scope small fields first. This way you will be able to know where deer bed. Also, using your watch you can learn how to be still for a specified period. In this way, you will be able to keep still for a longer period.

3. Be on your knees when hunting
Whether you use a bow or a gun on your hunting trip, it is important that you shoot when kneeling down. It is not easy for animals to recognize you when you are kneeling. Thus, in this position you can stalk an animal and fire a shot when the time is right.

4. Do not be in a hurry
One of the biggest mistakes made by novice deer hunters is going the same way a deer has gone. When you identify a deer trail, figure out where the deer is coming from. Then go to the direction that puts downwind, and crosswind as this gets you away from the deer’s line of sight.

5. Use vocalization tech
If you want to attract a deer you can use deer vocalization that gives you the ability to sound just like a deer. When using this technology start small just in case, there is a deer near you. A loud sound can stop a deer. Also, you have to watch for how a deer reacts to your sounds.

6. Don’t make human sounds
There are many sounds that are part of our daily lives that are unnatural to a deer. In this regard, avoid making sounds that do not fit into a deer’s natural surroundings. A good example is a phone ring, coughing, banging of metal equipment. If it is possible, avoid carrying your phone.

7. Ensure your accessories are accessible
Thanks to technology there are many gadgets that you can use to improve your hunting skills. One such gadget is a rangefinder. To make things simple on your end, you store your best rangefinder in a way that it is easy to access when you need it during a hunt.

8. Use a facemask or paint
Since a deer has better eyesight than you, it is able to identify the characteristic contours of your face. Putting on a face mask or face will make it more difficult for a deer to identify you. In this regard, you can hide from a deer.

9. Use camouflaged accessories
Like I have mentioned there are many handy accessories that you can use to improve your hunting. However, these accessories can also make you stand out in the rugged and natural surroundings of a forest. To minimize the risk of being spotted by a deer use accessories with a dull color or that have a color that is similar to a forest’s natural surroundings. Do not use accessories that are shiny as they may reflect light and give you away.

10. Stay healthy
When the deer season comes around you, need to be healthy throughout the season. Therefore, use tick repellant to avoid contracting tick-borne diseases that can be catastrophic to your hunting season.
