All items in storage should be on dunnage if not palletized, and there should be sufficient aisle
space to accommodate forklift trucks or emergency equipment. There should be no more than one
light box per lot number of ammunition. A light pallet is one from which one or more boxes are missing.
See Figure 7. At least two inches of dunnage is required for magazine storage. Inspect the stacks to
ensure that they are stable. Refer to the applicable ammunition storage drawings to determine the
adequacy of dunnage.
Ammunition lot numbers and markings must be placed so that they can be read without moving
boxes or climbing on stacks. Check to make sure that the ammunition is stacked by lot number with
the nomenclature facing up and outward. Ammunition is always stacked from the back to the front,
large lots first.

Magazine Data Card
A DA Form 3020-R (Magazine Data Card) must be on each stack of ammunition. The DA Form
3020-R must contain all the necessary information for each lot and stack of ammunition-NSN, DODIC,
lot number, quantity, etc. See Figure 8.
