Officially, a Marine rifleman carries 180 rounds and a SAW gunner carries a 200 round drum while his A-gunner has 400 rounds for the SAW plus a spare barrel and his own weapons and ammo. Realistically, everyone carries more ammo and the SAW gunner carries all of his own crap.

IF a soldier has a M2O3 attached to his gun, how many shells do they have on them? And do they carry frag grenades or no?

everything is METT-T
To the original poster, since you asked and probably do not know:
M= Mission, E= Enemy, T= Terrain & weather, T= Troops & fire sppt avail and -T= Time.
As Erick said, these ALL factor into your loadout. Besides, you may also be carrying unit gear, i.e.: litters, ladders, breaching equip., 60mm mortar rounds, and any other shoulder and back breaking gear in order to finish the job.
Life's tough. But it's tougher when you're stupid.
