Is there any written clarification on the following standard?
A large majority of DOD Explosive, Ranges, and FARPs are not within the installation footprint. Complying with DESR V2.E184.108.40.206. forces operation/ training to cease when the installation could be 20, 50 or 100 miles away.
Is there a letter of interpretation for "within 10 miles [16 kilometers] of the installation"?
-V2.E220.127.116.11. Explosives facilities are served by an approved local lightning warning system (as determined by each DoD Component) permitting AE operations to be terminated before a thunderstorm is within 10 miles [16 kilometers] of the installation.
During my time in shipping munitions from Deployed base to another. There is really no guidance on how to load up and tie down munitions to go air cargo. Yes there are some on height limits for which nets to use, weight for the pallet. I am just curious if I have missed something on where there might be some standard drawings on this. I work at a CRTC base and would like to start teaching a class in this for the future ACE concept. For example there is no guidance on AIM-9 and creating a 463L pallet. I created one, but I believe there should be some standards out there or should be. Thank You for the help.
Trying to find out how I may dispose of Foreign Military Sales energetics for those countries that do not have the capability to do so in country. Any information is truly appreciated. Thank you.
The Army and Air Force Exchange is selling small arms ammunition in their
retail department. Is DA Pam 385-64, paragraph
2-11 or other explosive safety standards applicable to
the Exchange’s sale of ammunition? Should an
explosive license be issued?

I noticed DA Form 4508 doesn't allow the three letter code for the RIC to be entered whenever the letter "M" is used. For example, if I want to use the USMC RIC (MHQ), only two characters/letters are allowed to be typed on that block. Does anybody has a solution to this problem since the form cannot be edited nor the font size changed or adjusted.? Thanks!
Noticed a revision in the subject SPI. What is the purpose thread tail strapping procedure revision in Sheet 6, Detail A, Reference 4, ? Thank you.
What's the path for requesting a mobile training team to teach AMMO-62?
I understand that Operatioal Load (OPL) and Combat Load (CL) must go on the unit's property book but is there anything stating the PBUS DODAAC must be used to request the ammunition? Just curious. Thanks!
I'm comparing DA Pam 385-64, Figure 1-1, against the DAC online training courses offered, Online Training (dactces.org)
I knew that AMMO-68 (MMR) was an annual certification (CERT) refresher. But when did these others become CERT/Refresher rquired, and what is the timeline (i.e., annual) for completing the refresher? It doesn't state in the course descriptions...
AMMO-28, -45, -54, -63, -78...
Mr. Tibbetts: In an effort to help stem the pest and invasive plant infestations we have seen over the last few years with particular reference to containers, we have reached out to our Transportation Engineering Agency (TEA) as well as industry to see what is available to place containers on stands to safely inspect and wash-down the undersides of containers, where most infestations seem to come from, because of the difficulty/inability of customers to inspect the undersides of containers. I would be interested to see how everyone else satisfies this requirement. Please advise.
We are currently looking at shipping 240 BLU-139/B (1325016758742) for a retrograde and have been unable to find the correct drawing. Does anyone know the best way to proceed from here?
Folks: I have a question on who "owns" this document? I have an LNO from Australia who is asking about obtaining an update to the copy that they have. I don't see any distribution statements or any of the rest of it on the text and excel files we currently have available to us.
They have also asked the same question regarding the USMC Packaging Digest for Class V materiel.
Asking a two-part question. First question, do drivers' certifications such as Ammo 45, 67 and 108 is required when transporting/picking up inert ammunition or CS capsules (K765) from the ASP?
Second question. Are vehicles required placards when transporting CS capsules (small amount)? Thank you!
Need a poc at usatces to discuss an installations submission and lack of response.
I believe there used to be-or-is a requirement for a
(Separator Board) either metal or plywood that would separate the cargo
compartment of the vehicle from the
operator/passenger compartment when transporting ammo.
Does anyone have a reference?
