12. Receipt and issue references. The receipt and issue of ammunition are two distinct and separate functions
a. Receipt refers to a shipment of ammunition received from another ASP, CSA, TSA or directly from a port
or a manufacturing plant. It should not be confused with unit turn-ins. The following applies:
(1) Ammunition receipt operations include the completion of administrative details, the inspection of
vehicles, and the transportation of the ammunition to a designated storage location.
(2) Class V stocks received by an ammunition storage facility are recorded on stock records, reported to
the appropriate materiel management center (MMC), and stored pending subsequent shipment or
issue. DA Pam 710-2-2 and FM 9-38 cover receipt procedures. See Figure 5 for a flowchart of
b. Issue refers to the transfer of ammunition stocks from an ammunition storage facility to an authorized
user, but not to another ammunition storage facility. Again, DA Pam 710-2-2 and FM 9-38 cover issues.
See Figure 6, page 12 for a flowchart of issue procedures.
(1) Ammunition is issued by direct support (DS) and/or general support (GS) ammunition units to using
units. This may be at the ASP or ATP, as required under MOADS.
(2) Issues are based on identified requirements stated on DA Form 581. See Figure 7, page 13 for an
example of a completed DA Form 581 as a request for issue.
(3) Receipt and issue procedures/operations are contained in FM 9-38, and DA PAM 710-2-2, as
mentioned above. FM 9-6 and FM 9-13 also cover receipts and issues.
13. Logistics references. These documents vary from the broad-range logistics planning data references to the
more detailed unit-level requirements.
a. FM 101-10-1/1, Staff Officers' Field Manual for Organizational, Technical, and Logistical Data.
(1) This document is used primarily by the staff officers who are required to develop planning data at the
(2) Chapter 3, Section IV, covers Class V supplies (ammunition). It can be used either for an overview or
for high-level planning. Unit basic load (UBL) planning is a major function of this document.
b. The ammunition officer will probably refer to FM 9-6 and FM 9-38 for logistics planning requirements.
Other documents which may be used for logistics planning are:
(1) The TM 43-0001 and/or 0002 series.
(2) TM 9-1300-206.
(3) DA Pam 710-2-2.
