The Range 400 is utilized by deploying units to train rifle companies in techniques used when attacking fortified areas, and is possibly the most dynamic live-fire range in the Marine Corps. “400” is the only range in the Marine Corps where overhead machine gun and rifle fire is authorized. Waivers also allow Marines to close within 250 meters of 81mm mortar fire. At most ranges 400 meters in the minimum. Range 400 gives the Marines of Bravo the most realistic training experience.
