Marine Corps Reference Publication (MCRP) 3-01A, Rifle Marksmanship, provides the doctrine, techniques, and procedures for Marine Corps rifle marksmanship.
Every Marine is first and foremost, a rifleman. MCRP 3-01A reflects this ethos and the Marine Corps warfighting philosophy. This publication discusses the individual skills required for effective rifle marksmanship, and standardizes the techniques and procedures throughout the Marine Corps. It constitutes, the doctrinal basis for all entry level and sustainment level rifle marksmanship training.
MCRP 3-01A supersedes the discussion of rifle marksmanship in Fleet Marine Force Manual (FMFM) 0-8, Basic Marksmanship and FMFM 0-9, Field Firing for the M16A2 Rifle. (The discussion of pistol marksmanship in FMFM 0-8 remains in effect until until superseded by MCRP 3-01B, Pistol Marksmanship, which is currently under development.)
Recommendations for improving this manual are invited from commands as well as directly from individuals. Forward suggestions using the User Suggestion Form format to:
