(c) A hasty sight setting is the setting placed on the rear sight elevation knob to engage targets beyond 300 yards/meters. Hasty sight settings for ranges of 400 to 800 yards/meters are applied by rotating the rear sight elevation knob to the number that corresponds with the engagement distance of the enemy. Aligning the number 4, 5, 6, or 7 with the elevation index line places the elevation BZO for 400, 500, 600, or 700 yards/meters, respectively. If a clockwise rotation is continued, the number 8/3 appears for the second time on the elevation index line and indicates an 800 yard/meter elevation BZO.
(2) Windage Knob. The windage knob is used to adjust the strike of the round right or left.
The windage knob is marked with an arrow that shows the direction the strike of the round is being moved. See figure 9-8.
