US Army Rifle Team Wins Shooting Competition hosted by Marine Corps

Army Rifle Team Wins

Soldiers from the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit’s Service Rifle Team are competing in the 2019 Interservice Rifle Championships this week in Quantico, Virginia.
 
The week-long, annual competition is hosted by the Marine Corps’ Weapons Training Battalion and tests the rifle marksmanship skills of service members from across the Department of Defense: Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Army National Guard, and Army Reserve.
 
This video shows some of the action from the Commanding General’s Match, which is a six-man team match. The course of fire is: 10 standing, slow-fire shots at 200 yards; 10 prone from standing, rapid-fire shots at 300 yards; and 10 prone, slow-fire shots at 600 yards.
 
USAMU had three teams competing and placed 1st, 2nd, and 5th place. The 1st place team, USAMU Craig, won with a score of 1782-65X, which tied with their winning score last year.
