UNIT BASIC LOAD INSPECTION
When the time for a unit's annual basic load inspection approaches, make an inspection appointment with the
commander of the unit you will be inspecting. Ask the S4 (supply officer) of the unit's battalion to send you a list
will need to take with you to the unit-supply bulletins and technical manuals for the DODACs maintained by the
company and TM 9-1300-206, which provides quantity distance (QD) requirements and fire and safety standards.
Prior to your inspection appointment, go to the S4 of the unit's battalion. Tell the S4 who you are and why
you are there. Say you want to see the property book, which is made up of copies of DA Form 3328, to look up
the Class V material the unit to be inspected has signed for. Make a list of these items and take it with you to the
When you arrive at the unit, report to the unit commander punctually. Request the unit's standing operating
procedures (SOP); the last ammunition inspection report; DA Form 2064 (Document Register for Supply
Actions); storage waivers, if any; and all the unit's ammunition documents:
DA Form 581 (Request for Issue and Turn-In of Ammunition). Used to request or turn in ammunition. This
is the source document used to make up the property book pages (DA Forms 3328). A sample DA Form 581
is given in Figure 1.
DA Form 2062 (Hand Receipt/Annex Number). Used by the hand receipt holder as a sub-hand receipt for
ammunition in subordinate units, in this case, letter companies of the battalion. The battalion S4 should have
filled out a DA Form 2062 for each action. A sample DA Form 2062 is given in Figure 2.
DA Form 3328 (Property Record). Used for accountability purposes. A separate Property Record is required
for each type of ammunition on hand; together they make up the property book. A sample DA Form 3328 is
given in Figure 3.
DA Form 3328-1 (Serial/Registration Number Record). Used as a continuation form in the property book for
items consisting of serial numbers or lot numbers, or both. A sample DA Form 3328-1 is given in Figure 4.
Unit table of organization and equipment (TOE)/modified TOE (MTOE). Used to verify personnel and
weapons authorized to the unit. See TOE 09064H100 Section III, in Figure 5.
Basic Load Requirements sheet. Used to determine the requirements by type of weapon and ammunition per
weapon. See the example in Figure 6.
Also request the assistance of any personnel (to help move, handle, and repack ammunition items) you will
need while you are conducting the inspection. Advise the unit commander that you will render any on-the-spot
technical assistance required.
