Basic Rifle Marksmanship

Cadets in the Leader Development and Assessment Course (LDAC) at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., learn basic rifle marksmanship. In order to qualify, Cadets are required to fire 40 rounds of ammunition at cardboard targets designed to mimic distances of 50 to 300 meters. Of the 40 rounds that Cadets fire they must hit at least 23 targets to qualify as a marksman, 29 targets to qualify as a sharpshooter and 36 targets to qualify as an expert.
