An evaluation has been made of AeReCo explosives 459-23 and 475. The explosives withstand 350 F for at least one hour and 300 F for eight hours. Their storability qualities are excellent and they are not affected by moisture at any climatic temperature. In cratering tests the AeReCo 459-23 equalled tritonal. Batch type loading techniques were evaluated by loading BLU-31 bombs.
