Army Field Manual 2-22.68 provides a single source of technical information, training techniques, guidance for using, and
integration into combat operations of three crew-served machine guns, the 5.56-mm and 7.62-mm M60, M240B, and M249. For quick
reference, this publication includes an appendix with all of the firing tables collocated. Trainers must ensure that everyone observes
safety procedures at all times. Leaders, trainers, and Soldiers must remember: safety is everyone’s full-time responsibility. They must
conduct all training as though each weapon is fully loaded. In training, safety is always more important than speed or accuracy.
