3. DA PAM 710-2-1, Appendix L contains a list which shows the items that must be turned in. Figure 4
is a partial extract of the Table for Federal Supply Category (FSC) 1305. The information in the table is
formatted as follows:
a. DODIC. The Department of Defense Identification Code.
b. NSN/Nomenclature. There are several NSN/Nomenclature entries for each DODIC. The first
entry is the live ammunition item; the entries that follow, the residue items generated when the
ammunition is consumed. In some cases, such as DODIC C449, Table L-3, a single component may
have several NSNs. In this case, all applicable NSNs are listed under the DODIC.
c. Unit pack. The quantity of items contained in the DODIC.
d. Allowable loss. The percentage applied to ammunition residue by the SSA when the
ammunition is turned in. The SSA uses this percentage to determine if the using unit consumed the
ammunition issued to the unit.
(1) The using unit must turn-in all residue. If the residue and live ammunition turned-in is less
than the quantity of ammunition issued, and the difference is more than the allowable loss for residue,
the unit commander must initiate an investigation under AR 190-11 (NGR 190-11 in the ARNG) and, if
applicable, AR 735-11, and provide the SSA with a statement on the turn-in document that such
investigation was initiated.
(2) When this column is blank, there is no allowable loss and the unit must return all of the item.
There are no allowable losses for live ammunition. No allowable losses are specified for fired cartridge
casings (brass, steel, etc.). The SSA accountable officer determines, on a case-by-case basis, if the
training event conducted prevented collection and turn-in of all fired cartridge casings.
4. The stock control clerk will normally have three documents in his position in order to perform the
reconciliation. He will identify the number of live ammunition issued to the unit from the original DA
Form 581. In this case we will say that 16,800 rds were issued. He will then deduct the number of live
rounds turned-in on the DA Form 581 for serviceable ammunition. In this case we will say that 10,000
rds were turned-in. He will then check the DA Form 581 for residue to see if 6,800 cartridge cases were
turned-in. Let's assume that these items were A071 NSN 1305-00-926-3930; ctg 5.56 mm ball M193.
In addition to the cartridge cases the unit must turn-in the salvageable material. Referring to Figure 4,
we find that the unit must turn-in 168 ten round clips for each 1680 rds issued or in this case 1680 clips.
They will turn-in 12 magazine fillers for the 5.56 mm ctg for each 1680 rds issued or 120
