Descriptive name of article

Ammunition for cannon with nonexplosive projectile. Ammunition for cannon with empty projectile. Ammunition for cannon with inert-loaded projectile.

Ammunition for cannon with solid projectile. Ammunition for cannon without projectile.

Explosive power devices, class B.

Characteristic properties, cau-
tions, markings required
Ammunition for cannon with
empty projectiles, inert-
loaded projectiles, solid pro-
jectiles, or without projec-
tiles, or shell, and catapult
charges exceeding 2 inches
in diameter, is fixed am-
munition assembled in a
unit consisting of the car-
tridge case containing the
propelling charge and pri-
mer with empty, inert-
loaded, or solid projectiles,
or without projectiles, which
is fired from a cannon,
mortar, gun, howitzer or
recoilless rifle.
Each outside package must be
plainly marked with the ap-
propriate descriptive name
of the contents as "Ammuni-
tion for cannon with empty
projectile.' "Ammunition
for cannon with inert-loaded
projectile," "Ammunition
for cannon with solid projec-
tile," "Ammunition for
cannon without projectile."
Explosive power devices,

Class B, are devices de-
signed to operate ejecting
apparatus or other mecha-
nisms by means of a propel-
lant explosive, Class B, and
differ from explosive power
devices, Class C, in that
they contain larger or more
powerful propellants. The
devices must not rupture on
functioning and must be of
a type approved by the
Department of Transpor-
tation. Explosive power
devices, Class B, must not
be shipped with igniters
assembled therein unless
shipped by, for, or to the
Departments of the Army,
Navy, and Air Force of the
United States Government.
Each outside container must
be plainly marked "Explo-
sive Power Devices, Class
B" and "Handle Care-
fully-Keep Fire Away."

Fireworks or fireworks compositions that ignite spontaneously or undergo marked decomposition when subjected for 48 consecutive hours to a temperature of 75° C., (167° F.).

Fireworks properly condemned by the Bureau of Explosives, except properly packed samples for laboratory examinations.


Toy torpedoes exceeding 7% in. diameter or containing a mixture of potassium chlorate, black antimony and sulfur exceeding 4 grains average weight of such explosive composition.

Toy torpedoes containing a cap composed of red phosphorous and potassium chlorate exceeding

per cap.


Fireworks or fireworks compositions described bere are, for the purposes of safety in transportation, forbidden to be offered or transported because of instability or risk of premature ignition or detonation.

Fireworks must be in a finished state, exclusive of mere ornamentation, as supplied to the retail trade and must be so constructed and packed that loose pyrotechnic composition will not be present in packages in transportation. Each outside container shall be plainly marked: "Special Fireworks-Handle Carefully-Keep Fire Away". Do not stow in same compartment with any inflammable liquid or solid, inflammable compressed gas or combustible organic material.
