Forehead at the top. Left and right chest (nipple to nipple) at the bottom. That's a non-sniper's interpretation, John. Just something picked up reading. Someone else may know better.

John,

S&W Academy as well as FBI snipers course's taught me that the "sniper's triangle" is the base of the throat, and the nipples. This is derived from military sniping where head shots are not required as they are LE sniping.

Across the top of the eyes, and down to the bottom of the nose.

I guess everyone refers to it differently. GLV's definition certainly makes more sense for LE sniping.

I have always heard of it as the "T Box"
across the eyes and down to the bottom of the nose is what the T Box is. It is about a 1.5" wide line that covers the area stated.
