As announced on March 11th, the US Marine Corps is set to implement sweeping changes to its rifle marksmanship training and qualification regulations, aiming to bolster combat lethality and accuracy among troops.

Revamping Rifle Marksmanship Training

The Marine Corps is overhauling its rifle marksmanship training program, aiming to turn all of its Marines into highly lethal sharpshooters.

This initiative comes in response to concerns about existing shortcomings in marksmanship accuracy as identified in studies dating back to 2018.

The new program emphasizes real-world combat scenarios, with Marines qualifying on tougher targets.
