Participants36 from 6 countries
FormatSix-man teams. Shot in three stages. 100 possible per individual; 600 possible per team.

The United States team had the highest score in all three stages, winning the gold medal quite easily over Great Britain. A seventh team was entered, Russia, but they did not compete. Because there were seven entries, only four teams were supposed to advance to the second stage. But Finland and Sweden were tied at 95 after the first stage and both were allowed to continue, eliminating only France after the first day. Both Finland and Sweden were eliminated after the second stage, leaving the final shooting to the United States, Great Britain, and Germany. The real contest was for the silver medal between Great Britain and Germany. After stage one, Germany was in second place, trailing the United States by only one bird, and after two stages, Britain led Germany by only one bird. Both teams scored 247 in the final stage to give Great Britain the silver medal.
