Intermediate Distance Carbine
The Forge Tactical Intermediate Distance Carbine course is an 8-hour intermediate level course. This course develops the student’s intermediate range skills (50-300 yards), extending the effective range of the 5.56 carbine in the student’s hands to match the capabilities of the platform. The goal of this course is the achievement of first round hits from 50 to 300 yards. Topics introduced include basic extended ballistics, zeroing options, effects of weather, range estimation, shooting positions, holdover compensation, common ballistic reticles, and spotting techniques and communication.
