f. Precautions. Observe the general precautions concerning the firing and handling of ammunition in the field, as prescribed in TM 9-1300-206. Precautions that apply particularly to small-arms ammunition are:
(1) Do not fire small-arms ammunition (other than blank ammunition) until it has been positively identified by ammunition lot number and grade. Do not fire small-arms ammunition graded and marked "For Training Use Only" over the heads of troops.
(2) Do not use armor-piercing cartridges in demonstrations where tanks are used as demonstration targets.
(3) Before firing, make sure that the bore of the weapon is free from foreign matter, such as cleaning patches, mud, sand, and snow.
