The men's team military rifle, also referred to as the International, was one of 15 events on the Shooting at the 1908 Summer Olympics programme.[1] Teams consisted of six shooters, with each shooter firing 90 shots at targets at varying distances. 15 shots were fired at each of 6 distances: 200, 500, 600, 800, 900, and 1,000 yards (910 m). A bulls-eye counted for 5 points, and thus the highest possible score for each shooter was 450 points, with the team maximum being 2700.

Each shooter was required to use his nation's official military rifle.

A summation of Merillon's scores at the various distances gives a total of 363 points rather than 376, while Hecht's scores sum to 389 instead of 376. The two discrepancies cancel each other out in the addition of the team total, which comes to 2272 points. The Official Report lists the team total as 2227 points.
