Step 2: Divide the number of rounds required by the stockage list by the number of rounds per package

(QTY Per Ship Cont). This figure will provide the number of packages.

= 9,600

NOTE: If you are working with PALLETIZED ammunition, use the information under the heading

PALLET DATA and PALLET DIMENSIONS. In this lesson we will only use information for loose

boxes, under PACKAGE DATA.

Step 3: Divide the total number of packages by the number of packages per pallet (SC/PT). This figure

will provide the number of pallets.

= 240

NOTE: In field conditions, when you complete the gross tonnage of items of ammunition you will need:

(1) a stockage list, (2) SC 1305/ 30-IL or SC 1340/98-IL or DOD Consolidated Ammunition Catalog

and; (3) pen and paper.

Step 4: Multiply the number of pallets by weight per pallet (PLT WT). This gives the total weight of

all pallets.

240

= 763,440 Pounds

Step 5: Divide the total weight of all pallets by 2,000 pounds. This provides the total gross tonnage for

the first line item of the stockage list in Figure 2.

763,440

+

2,000

= 381.72

The other line items of the stockage list are then computed the same way. All the weights added up are

the total of short tons of the items that the ASP will be required to store. This tonnage will be used with

field storage categories (discussed below) to compute QD.

2. Preparing a storage plan for an ASP involves several steps, all of which must be accomplished. The

first step is to compute the tonnage. Next, the storage categories of the ammunition to be stored are

determined. The QDs are figured and finally, the storage system is selected. These collective

actions then provide the necessary information for the actual plan to be drawn. It should be noted,

however, that the primary focus of this lesson is on ASP QD and storage compatibility. This focus is

merely on a couple of vital elements in formulating a storage plan. Other subcourses and lessons

will address the tasks necessary to prepare and implement a storage plan.

Compute the gross tonnage for the second item on the stockage list in Figure 2. Use the data from

Figure 4, page 7, and the step-by-step formula, as previously discussed, if necessary.
