You will learn how to inspect and maintain the wooden ammunition boxes and fiber containers used to store
When you have completed this lesson, you should be able to describe the procedures required to
inspect and maintain wooden ammunition boxes and fiber containers.
You will have this subcourse book and will work without supervision.
Inspection and maintenance of wooden ammunition boxes and fiber containers will be in
accordance with TM 9-1300-250 and TM 9-1300-251-20.
The material contained in this lesson was derived from TM 9-1300-250 and TM 9-1300-251-20.
Semifixed ammunition rounds are packed in moisture-resistant fiber containers overpacked in wooden boxes. In
this lesson, the wooden box used to store and ship 105mm semifixed ammunition rounds is used as an example,
because it is a common item at most ammunition supply points (ASPs).
WOODEN AMMUNITION BOXES
There are six things you must inspect on every wooden box: the hardware, the handles, the wood, the markings,
the lead-wire seal, and the bands. See Figure 1-1.
