    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for sheet, strip, plate, bar, and disks for the manufacture of ammunition component parts thereof from alloy UNS C26000.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units, which are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.2.1 Exception—Values given in inch-pound units are the standard except for grain size which is stated in metric units.

    1.3 The following safety caveat pertains only to the test method described in Section 10 of this specification. (Warning—Mercury has been designated by many regulatory agencies as a hazardous material that can cause serious medical issues. Mercury, or its vapor, has been demonstrated to be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials. Caution should be taken when handling mercury and mercury containing products. See the applicable product Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for additional information. Users should be aware that selling mercury and/or mercury containing products into your state or country may be prohibited by law.)

    1.4  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
