This was the first shooting event contested at the 1908 Olympics. The match began on 9 July in clear, but windy weather. The wind quartered against the shooters from the left and teams using light rifles, especially Finland, were hampered. A variety of rifles were used. Finland used the light Mofferd rifle, Sweden used the Mauser government issue, Denmark used the Krag-Jørgensen, Greece and the Netherlands used the Mannlicher, while France used the Swiss Martini rifle. The wind died down during the afternoon and the shooting improved. Darkness fell, however, and the match could not be finished. It was concluded the next day in very wet, windy weather. The winning Norwegian team used private match rifles.
