DA Form 5790 Record Firing Scorecard - Scaled Target Alternate Course

What Is DA Form 5790?

DA Form 5790, Record Firing Scorecard - Scaled Target Alternate Course is a form used for recording scores during alternate qualification courses.

The scorecard - sometimes referred to as the DA Form 5790-R or the DD Form 5790 - was released by the Department of the Army (DA) in December 2016. An up-to-date DA Form 5790 is available for download below or can be found through the Army Publishing Directorate website. The current version of the form supersedes the DA Form 5790-R Jan. 2011 edition.

The two Army-authorized alternate record fire courses are the Known Distance (KD) record fire range and the 25-meter scaled target alternate course, used when the KD range is unavailable. The DA 5790 is used specifically during the 25-meter scaled target alternate course. The 25-meter course allows testing a Soldier's weapon marksmanship proficiency. Firing at scaled silhouettes allows Soldiers to engage targets with feedback and within time constraints.

APD LC v1.00ES
This scorecard is used to score alternate course record fire qualification when the 25-meter scaled silhouette target (NSN 6920-01-167-1398) is used. The alternate course is used only
when standard record fire and known distance ranges are unavailable.
NOTE: If zeroing/grouping exercises are not performed on the day of record fire, six rounds of training/sustainment ammunition will be fired for 25-meter zero confirmation prior to conducting the qualification course.
CONDUCT OF FIRE
SCORING
The same target sheet is used for every 40-round qualification table
that a firer completes. One hit is awarded for each round that strikes
Alternate course qualification firers will have one 20-round magazine
within or touches some part of the silhouette. A maximum of 40 hits
and two 10-round magazines. To ensure that firers do not forget which
is comprised of 3 hits per target at 200, 250, and 300 meters; 4 hits
targets they engaged and shoot a given target more than the
per target at 150 meters; and 5 hits per target at 50 and 100 meters.
prescribed number of times, firers should adhere to the following
guideline: Engage targets on the sheet from left to right and nearest to
farthest. Engagement should follow this order: 50m, 100m left, 100m
center, 100m right, 150m left, 150m right, 200m left, 200m right, 250m,
and 300m.
Though the time between each firing position is not specified, enough
time should be allotted to allow the firer to clear his weapon, quickly
change firing positions, and reload before beginning the next firing
table. The range RSO ensures that enough time is given between each
change in firing position to facilitate the timely flow of the record fire
qualification table.
(1) Table 1-- Prone Supported Firing Position or (at the unit
commander's discretion) Foxhole Supported Firing Position.
The firer is given one 20-round magazine to engage 10 silhouettes on
the same target sheet. Table 1 includes 2 rounds for each silhouette.
Firing must be completed in 120 seconds. No more than 2 hits are
scored for each silhouette.
(2) Table 2 -- Prone Unsupported Firing Position.
The firer is given one 10-round magazine to engage 10 silhouettes on
the same target sheet. Table 2 includes 1 round for each silhouette.
Firing must be completed in 60 seconds. No more than 1 hit is scored
for each silhouette.
(3) Table 3 -- Kneeling Firing Position.
The firer is given one 10-round magazine to engage 10 silhouettes on
the target sheet. Table 3 includes 2 rounds for each silhouette
positioned at 50 and 100 meters and 1 round for each silhouette
positioned at 150 meters. Firing must be completed in 60 seconds. No
more than 2 hits are scored for the 50- and 100-meter silhouettes, and

How to File DA Form 5790?

To complete this course, Soldiers fire three tables. Table 1 is fired from prone supported firing position or supported position in 120 seconds. Table 2 is fired from a prone unsupported firing position over a period of 60 seconds. Table 3 is fired kneeling in an unsupported firing position over a period of 30 seconds.

An overview of the Army record firing scorecard and filing guidelines can be found in the TC 3-22.9, Rifle and Carbine, released in May 2016. DA Form 5790 instructions are as follows:

  1. The top line of the form requires specifying ID code of the firer along with their unit, the date the course is taking place and the ID of the evaluator.
  2. Table 1 is filled in with the results of firing in prone supported or foxhole supported position. Table 2 records the results of shooting in a prone unsupported position and Table 3 is for the results of firing in kneeling position. The digital form will automatically calculate the results of the course and the firer's overall score.
  3. The form also provides fields for recording night firing exercises and a CBRN exercise. The evaluator has to record the number of hits, misses and mark if the exercise was completed successfully overall.
  4. The scorer can add remarks if necessary. The completed form must be certified with the initials of the scorer and the firer and should include the day of filing the form.
