This research effort was initiated to establish a standardized alternate rifle qualification course to be used by all components of the U.S. Army. Based on an Army-wide survey, two alternate rifle qualification courses were recommended a Known Distance Alternate Course, and a 25-Meter Alternate Course. Data are presented for each alternate course of fire and appropriate scoring procedures are recommended. In addition, conduct of fire, alibi, and refire procedures are outlined. Adoption of the recommended alternate courses will provide standardized methods for rifle qualification with existent range facilities for all components of the U.S. Army.
