Known Strike of the Round

This offset aiming technique shifts the aiming point (sight picture) to compensate for rounds that strike off target center. The known strike of the round method is used if the strike of the round is known. To engage a target using this method, a Marine aims an equal distance from center mass opposite the known strike of the round. For example, if the round strikes high and left, a Marine aims an equal and opposite distance low and right.
