Downrange feedback training should include detailed explanations of the targets: how the 12-cm circle on the 75-meter target and 28-cm circle on the 175-meter equate to the 4-cm zeroing standard on the 25-meter range; the small difference that should be experienced between point of aim and bullet strike; how the grid can be used for making sight adjustments; and how the targets should be marked. Training should also include how wind can affect bullets and should emphasize the fundamentals of firing.

The information provided to the firer and instructor/trainer should be visualized for the targets shown in Figure G-34A. These two firing performances provide the same information back to the firing line — the target was hit one time and missed twice. When bullet locations can be seen, the firing problems are quite different. The firer on the left is failing to apply fundamentals, and the firer on the right has a zeroing problem. The targets in Figure G-34B indicate that both firers are turning in an excellent performance by hitting with all three bullets. However, when the actual bullet strikes can be seen, it is obvious that the firer on the left needs assistance.
