Presentation on theme: "Task, Conditions and Standards"— Presentation transcript:
1Task, Conditions and Standards TASK- Zero an M16A2 Rifle CONDITIONS- On a 25-meter range, given an M16A2 rifle, 18 rounds of 5.56-mm ammunition, a 300-meter zero target, and sandbags for support. STANDARDS- Using 18 rounds or less, the soldier must battlesight zero his rifle by achieving five out of six rounds in two consecutive shot groups within the 4-centimeter circle. Bullets that break the line of the 4-centimeter circle will be used in evaluating the soldier's performance.

5Marksmanship Fundamentals The four fundamentals are:Steady positionAimBreath controlTrigger squeeze
6Steady PositionA shooter must assume a comfortable, steady position in order to hit targets consistently.The elements of a steady position include: Non-firing hand grip, rifle butt position, firing hand grip, firing elbow placement, non-firing elbow placement, stock weld, support, muscle relaxation, and natural point of aim.
7AimingAiming involves correct site alignment, correct sight picture, and focusing on the front sight.Once a shooter learns to aim correctly, he must do the same procedure every shot.Accuracy is consistency; consistency is accuracy.
8Breath ControlDuring zeroing or slow fire on single targets, a shooter simply holds his breath momentarily and shoots.The shot must be fired before any discomfort results or the lay of the rifle will be disturbed.
9Trigger ControlAll of the fundamentals are important but, trigger control is the most critical!!!It is also the fundamental that shooters perform incorrectly most often.
1425 Meter ZeroThe shooter fires two separate, three-round shot groups and numbers them.Based on the shot groups and info provided on the target, the shooter computes the changes needed.
1525 Meter ZeroHere the shooter needs to move the strike of his rounds down 2 clicks and to the left 10 clicks.After the sight adjustment, 2 more 3-round groups are fired to confirm they are hitting center mass.
