Abstract : Range tables have been constructed for eight Army-type rifle and hand grenades fired from the M16 rifle. The range and time of flight were measured for launch elevation angles of 5 to 45 -bor type degrees. Final range data are the result of averaging the individual data points and compensating for wind effects. Tables are presented for the following grenades: M21 Hand Grenade with M1A2 Adapter, M30 Hand Grenade with M1A2 Adapter, M31 Rifle Grenade, M34 Hand Grenade with M1A2 Adapter, M22A2 Rifle Grenade, M23 Rifle Grenade, M27 Rifle Grenade, and the M7A1 CN Hand Grenade with M2A1 Adapter. No breakage of component parts of the guns or gun stocks occurred during the tests.
