Master Stock Record Card

The MSRC (fig. 2-9) serves as a record of the total number of rounds of a certain NALC/DODIC held by the unit in each condition code. The MSRC is also used to record information identifying each transaction and the total quantity of ammunition ordered, received, transferred; or expended.

Ammunition Lot/Location Card

The ammunition lot/location card (fig. 2-10) is used to record the quantity and stowage location of an individual lot of ammunition. Transaction information is also recorded on this card but only for transactions concerning the lot listed.

Ammunition Serial/Location Card

The ammunition serial location card (fig. 2-11) is used to account for serialized items, such as missiles and torpedoes. Each card accounts for one item. In addition to maintaining an accurate inventory, these cards are used to record the maintenance-due date of the item covered The maintenance-due date indicates the date the item must be turned in to a weapons facility for inspection and any required maintenance.

Your ammunition ledger will most likely contain all three of these record cards. You will have one MSRC for each NALC and DODIC carried. These will be arranged in NALC/DODIC alphanumeric order in a binder or cabinet. Under each MSRC is an ammunition lot or serial number location card for each lot or serial-numbered item carried by NALC/DODIC. As ammunition is ordered, received, transferred, or expended, it is recorded on the cards. First, the total number of rounds involved is entered on the MSRC for that particular NALC/DODIC. The total number is then

broken down by lot or serial number, and each different number is entered on the appropriate location card All entries are to be made in ink or typed These cards are required to be retained for a minimum of 1 year after the item is expended or transferred.

The cards in the ammunition ledger contain much more information than what has been presented here. Chapter 12 of SPCCINST 8010.12 provides detailed guidance on the makeup and maintenance of the ammunition ledger.


Each time a piece of ammunition is expended, transferred, received, or changes condition code, an ammunition transaction report (ATR) must be submitted to update CAIMS. This report is normally required to be done within 24 hours of the event. ATRs are sent by naval message according to the instructions listed in SPCCINST 8010.12, chapter 8. A copy of each ATR message is maintained in a file and kept with the ledger. The ledger and the ATR file must match 100 percent.
