This SCG includes ammunition that poses no significant hazard in storage. This includes small arms
ammunition, thermal batteries, explosive switches, firing devices, and igniters for time fuse. These
items are packaged so that any explosive effect is confined. An accident may destroy a single pack,
but would not affect other packs nearby. Examples of SCG S items are shown in Figure 2-11.

STORAGE COMPATIBILITY CHART
To learn how an item of ammunition may be stored, first determine its SCG according to Table 5-20 in
TM 9-1300-206. This table is shown in Figure 2-12. The SCG of each ammunition item is also given in
Additional references that provide SCG information are the Ammunition Book Complete (ABC) and the
Hazard Classification of United States Military Explosives and Munitions
. These last two references
may not be available at all military activities. They are not available through regular publications
channels, but most activities performing ammunition related functions will have them.
You may also refer to Table 5-21 in TM 9-1300-206 to find the SCG and the QD classification of an
item. An extract of this table is shown in Figure 2-13. It lists most ammunition items in alphabetical
order, and provides the SCG for each item.
Figure 2-14 shows an extract of Figure 5-3 (the storage compatibility mixing chart) contained in TM 9-
1300-206. This chart is used to determine which SCGs may be combined in storage, and which SCGs
must be stored separately. Examine this chart, and read the notes carefully.
