Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS), Validation Engineering Division (SMCAC-DEV), was tasked by U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) to conduct UN POP tests on M24 wooden boxes with metal liners which were manufactured in 1972 and 1982. UN POP tests were conducted to determine if these M24 wooden boxes were suitable to use for the shipment of M6 solid propellant. The M24 containers passed all tests for Packing Group II requirements; however, they failed to meet Packing Group I requirements. This report contains test results and Packing Group II requirements for the shipment of M6 solid propellant in M24 containers.
