Format: 300 metres prone. Five-man teams, each shooter with 10 shots. Team possible 300. Individual possible 60.
Five shooters scored 59 individually in this event and three of them were Americans – [Carl Osburn], [Lloyd Spooner], and [Morris Fisher] – which enabled the US to win this gold medal with a comfortable margin over second-place France. Finland, Switzerland, and Sweden tied for third with 281 points. The original scores on the first reading of the targets was: Sweden 281, Switzerland 280, Finland 279. However, re-reading of the targets gave all three 281 and there was no shoot-off. The tie was broken by the re-read, and gave Finland third, Switzerland fourth, Sweden fifth.
