10-METER BORE LIGHT/
25-METER TARGET OFFSETS
This appendix provides all the 10-meter/25-meter target offsets for the M249/M240B weapons mounted with iron sight, optics, MILES, or aiming lasers. A blank reproducible 10-meter target offset is provided along with a table and example of every weapon configuration. The M16A2 300-meter zero target is used for 25-meter zeroing with all weapon configurations.
To mark the proper 10-meter target offset, the gunner must do the following:
a. Find the correct template for your weapon configuration.
b. Count the number of squares starting from center of the bore light circle on the offset to the desired point of aim. Each template also provides you with a number formula for the proper offset. Example (L2.0, U2.4): Starting from the center of the bore light circle (0.0, 0.0) move LEFT 2 squares and UP 2.4 squares.
c. Place the appropriate symbol or mark (Figure H-1).

To mark the proper 25-meter target offset do the following:
a. Use only M16A2 300-meter zero targets.
b. Find the correct target template for your weapon configuration.
c. Count the number of squares starting from the center of the 300-meter zeroing silhouette.
d. Mark the designated strike point by drawing a small circle at the appropriate number of squares from the center of the 300-meter zeroing silhouette.
e. Draw a 4-centimeter by 4-centimeter square keeping the designated strike point center mass of the 4-centimeter by 4-centimeter square.
Figure H-2 is an example completed 10-meter offset target. Reproduce onto 8 1/2" x 11" paper the blank target located in the back of this manual The quick reference card (Figure H-3) is located on the back of the target. The blank target can be laminated and used over and over again.
