a. The markings that are legible and the parts that should not be painted.
When touching up the paint on the body of the projectile, you should cover legible markings, the fuze,
and the rotating band to protect them from the paint. (Page 15, para 1)
The primer is sensitive to heat and friction, and any attempt to remove rust or corrosion could cause
the primer to ignite. (Page 17, para 1)
d. In numerical order, with increment number 1 at the base of the cartridge case.
The sequencing of the propelling charge increment bags is extremely important in that it allows the
guncrew to vary the size of the propelling charge to meet required firing distances. (Page 18, para 1)
c. Replace the eyebolt lifting plug and set the projectile aside for further disposition.
If the fuze-well liner is missing, there will be nothing to keep the explosive filler from exuding from the
fuze well. (Page 21, para 1)
a. The body of the projectile and the fuze well.
Inspection by the MOS 55B ammunition specialist is limited to the body and the fuze well of the
