The men's team small-bore rifle was one of 15 events on the Shooting at the 1908 Summer Olympics programme. Teams consisted of four shooters. Regulation of the equipment used in the event was done through proscribing ammunition weighing more than 140 grains, with a velocity of more than 1,450 feet per second, or having a hard metal base. Each shooter fired 40 shots, half at 50 yards and half at 100 yards. Maximum score for a shot was 5 points, giving a maximum total possible of 200 points per shooter or 800 per team.
