Just bought the game a month ago and the rules so far don't seem hard but i'm having a little confusion on the Ammo set up.

I'm starting out with the M4 which i'm allowed 97 rounds for my main gun. I set up my AA Report that broke down the main gun ammo type HE: 20, 67: AP, WP: 10, HCBI: 2 which comes to 97 rounds. Is this how it's supposed to be recorded?


I also set up my card where i put my ready rack markers down. I've attached a photo. Is this correct? I set my markers to show i have (8) rounds in HE and (8) rounds in AP. I also show i have (2) rounds in WP and (2) rounds in HCBI. Is this how it's recorded?





Thanks

Don't forget that you may need to add in "extra ammo" to your already existing loadout.

4.26 Load ammo (see 16.2). Record the number of rounds of
each gun ammo type you are carrying.

1. Consult the Ammo Tables for special loads and extra
ammo requirements.


The ready rack is a total of 8. Not 8 of each. For example 4 HE, 2 AP, 1 WP and 1 HCBI. SEE Example on page 12 of the rules.

Others may add to this.

Ok, got it.

As for extra ammo, I rolled and got a (2) for a "none" ammo...


Thanks for the help, Jim

I wouldn't add any more ammo as it can "go off" if/when you get hit.

Have FUN! I am now setting my game up again too. See ya out there! (probably I will play a day this weekend)

Thanks for the offer.

How does that work in solitaire?
