Estimating Distance Test

Military Handbooks: The Plattsburg Manual Advanced Training

This test is usually held after the record firing on the range has been

completed. No distance used in this test will be less than 547 yards

(battle sight range) or more than 1200 yards, which is considered the

extreme range for effective fire of individuals or a small command.

Should a soldier fail three times to make the necessary percentage in

these tests, his rifle qualification will be reduced one grade. For the

specific conditions governing this test, see Small Arms Firing Manual.
