Emplacement #1 magazine had a capacity of 494 rounds in cases and 96 rounds in rack or total of 590 rounds.

Ammunition was served to this passageway by two endless chain hoists with hooks. The hoists were connected by belts to small motors. These could be used only with projectiles. A request had been made to have trays attached to the hooks so that separate cartridge bags and projectiles may be combined, but this was found to be too dangerous. Powder bags were always kept in wooden trays or in ones arms.
