fundamental errors. If the shot group is on the paper target, no sight changes should be made.
The soldier then returns to the firing line and fires a second three-round shot group. Again, he moves downrange and examines the second shot group. The soldier connects the second set of bullet holes and marks them with the number 2. He then determines, along with the instructor/trainer, if any sight changes are needed. To make a sight change, both shot groups should be in the same location and no larger than 4 cm. All sight changes should be recorded on the target. A review of previous firings (groupings) is helpful.
After the sight changes are made, two more three-round shot groups are fired, using the same procedure to confirm the zero. The shot groups must be centered within the zero circle. When the instructor/trainer is satisfied that the soldier has achieved the best possible zero, the soldier is removed from the firing line.
Using this information, the zeroing process would be conducted as outlined in the following example:
Using the L-sight and applying the fundamentals, the soldier consistently aims target center of mass as shown in Figure G-19The soldier fires two separate three-round shot groups, as shown in Figure G-20, and numbers them. Based on the location of these two groups (Figure G-20), the soldier would make the sight adjustments shown in Figure G-21.
