I recall one time where we exercised with Live ammo and the ORP. Memory is hazy as to when, but I think I was with 2CS at the time (possibly pre Telic 6?). As I recall, 1 UK Armd Div were very twitchy about us playing with the real stuff, but in the end, the only write off was for 2 24hr rat packs that got crushed. I scared the crap out of a couple of young lads who were handballing a load of small arms ammo off of a flatrack. They were cradling each H83 in both arms and gingerly carrying each one to the pallets they were cross loading to, until I grabbed a couple of H83's and lobbed them towards the pallets.
That’s were effective Ammo management comes into its own.
