(SR) Marksman for Casters from HJ Rolls

For the caster's version of Marksman, when does it apply in combat? These are the most likely that I came up with.
1) Whenever you cast a spell in combat
2) Whenever you cast a spell on an opponent in combat
3) Whenever you use Bolt or Blast
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt

Marksman is still a modifier to a ranged attacks, so it would work with any power which has a ranged attack component. A ranged attack component falls under the description of Range for powers in the core rules where it says, "If a power lists three Ranges, such as 12/24/48, these are read just like missile weapon Ranges, and subtract the standard penalties for each Range bracket (0/–2/–4). The arcane character’s skill roll acts as both his “casting” and attack total for these type powers."

So the +2 bonus would apply to the attack roll result for those powers as long as the character does not move and the ROF is 1 (so not with more than one Bolt).

Hope that helps.
