between Category A ammunition and Category E ammunition is 900 feet. You always use the greater distance for
protection of personnel and to prevent adjacent categories of ammunition from being damaged by an explosion.
Example 4. Determine the minimum separation distance required between two unbarricaded stacks. One is a 10
ton stack of propelling charges and the other is a 10 ton stack of fuzes. Both of these items are Category B (see
Figure 14). The table in Figure 14 shows that unbarricaded stacks of Category B ammunition require at least 50
feet between stacks. The notes under this table tell us that there must be at least 100 feet between propelling
charges and any other stacks, whether barricaded or unbarricaded. The minimum separation distance is 100 feet
because the greater distance must be used.
5. After the site layout plan has been completed, you should ensure that all key personnel become familiar with
it, and no changes are made without proper staffing and approval.
6. You have now completed this lesson, Establish a Conventional Ammunition Storage Site. You will now do a
practice exercise to determine how much you have learned. If you do not feel ready, read the subcourse
again; then take the practice exercise. When you finish the practice exercise, you should be ready for the
