Section V Knowndistance Alternate Course

The known-distance alternate course gives soldiers the chance to engage targets at range with time constraints and feedback. The effects of wind and gravity are demonstrated while firing on the course. Before firing the course, ail soldiers confirm the zero of their assigned rifles at 300 yards with six sighter rounds. Training/sustainment ammunition is used for sighter rounds if a zeroing exercise is not conducted on the day of record fire. The six sighter rounds are fired in the prone supported position from the 300-yard line before qualification—sighter rounds do not count for score. The known-distance alternate course is a 12-hour course of instruction as follows:

25-metef zeroing: 4 hours Record fire: 8 hours
