e. The DA Form 3151-R is then returned to the stock control section where the quantity and types
of ammunition turned-in are compared against the DA Form 581 turn-in document from the using unit.
f. If there is a shortage, the stock control clerk lists the shortages on the DA Form 581.

and posting stock records, the DA Form 581 and any additional documents supporting the turn-in are
filed in the SSA/ASP voucher file by SSA/ASP document number sequence.
