recommended for the KD range. The F-type silhouette 75-meter feedback target can be engaged from the 100-yard line; the E-type silhouette 175-meter target from the 200-yard line; and the 300-meter target from the 300-yard line.

The KD range does not require the soldier to detect targets, to estimate range to targets, to scan a sector of fire, to respond to surprise targets, to respond to short exposure targets, to engage multiple targets, and so on.

NOTE: FM 25-7 and Appendix D provide information on pit crew operations, construction of target carriers for KD ranges, and ordering the sliding combination target frame (NSN 6920-049-9579).

An advantage of a KD range is the ability to see precisely where each bullet hits. Therefore, to benefit from this training, procedures must be established so soldiers can clearly see the results of each firing, whether a group, single shot, or 10-round exercise. This can be accomplished by single spotters alone at the closer ranges, using larger spotters as the range increases, supplementing the spotters with a marking disc, or using scopes and binoculars at the extended ranges.
