Turn-In of Ammunition Details
Ammunition details are devices designed to protect
explosives and/or facilitate their handling. They include
boxes, containers, pallets and accessories, protective
caps, tanks, and brass and steel cartridge cases. Many
of these items are expensive to procure. It is essential
for ammunition users and support activities to cooperate
by ensuring these ammunition details are returned for
NOCINST 8010.2 (series), chapter IV, sections 1
and 2, lists the details and cartridge cases that must be
returned. Ships and shore activities outside CONUS
that make ammunition expenditures must retain all
serviceable or repairable details and, at the earliest
opportunity, initiate their shipment to the consignee
listed in NOCINST 8010.2. Ammunition details and
cartridge cases that are unserviceable or unrepairable
should be turned in to the nearest property disposal
office as saleable scrap.
Each shipment of ammunition details must be
accompanied by a DOD Single-Line Release/Receipt
Document, DD Form 1348-1, and prepared as follows:
DATA BLOCKS 23 AND 24. Enter GP.2.
DATA BLOCKS 25 THROUGH 29. Enter 00001.
DATA BLOCKS 30 THROUGH 43. Enter the
DATABLOCK A. Enter the Service code, UIC, and
the name of the activity turning in the material.
DATA BLOCK B. Enter the Service code, UIC, and
name of the ultimate consignee, if known.
DATA BLOCKS U AND V. Enter SHIP TO
CONUS AMMO STOCK POINT when the ultimate
consignee is unknown.
DATA BLOCK X. Enter AMMO INERT ITEMS.
DATA BLOCK 2. Enter MC.
DATA BLOCK 5. Enter the number of containers.
DATA BLOCK 11. Enter Service code, UIC, name,
and hull number of the ship/activity where the material
will be turned in (when not the final destination).
DATA BLOCK FF. Enter CERTIFIED TO BE
DATA BLOCK GG. Enter APPROVED FOR
TEMPORARY STORAGE AND
Ships occasionally need to off-load ammunition for
temporary storage and custody ashore. When this is
necessary, the authority to off-load ammunition for
temporary storage and custody ashore must be obtained
from both the ships type commander and from the
activity where the material will be stored. The number
of days of temporary storage must be stated, not to
exceed a maximum of 45 days. If more than the
maximum period is desired, an extension may be
requested from the type commander.
For transaction reporting and inventory control
purposes, ammunition in temporary custody ashore is
considered aboard the ship and is carried on the ships
stock records. Therefore, personnel aboard ship do not
submit an off-loading transaction report. Consequently,
a receiving transaction report is not submitted when the
ammunition is physically returned. In the recent past,
confusion has resulted when personnel aboard ship
forgot certain items were in temporary custody ashore.
Personnel aboard ship must ensure stock record cards
are carefully annotated to reflect items in temporary
The activity storing the material must keep all
ammunition in temporary custody physically separate.
This is necessary because the ammunition is not
recorded on the activitys stock records as assets ashore.
Rework or maintenance is not done on items
temporarily stored ashore nor is unserviceable material
replaced. The material is returned to the ship exactly as
it was received for temporary custody ashore.
In summary, the primary advantage of temporary
storage and custody ashore is that a ship retains its
assets. Personnel aboard the ship do not have to reorder
and run the risk of not getting everything ordered. The
disadvantages are that items can be forgotten and
subsequently lost, or items can become suspended/
unserviceable and require last-minute replacement.
