Four of the series had to be completed in 8 seconds apiece, four more within 6 seconds, and four within 4 seconds.

The top 6 shooters in the qualifying round moved on to the final round. There, they fired an additional 40 shots.

After the 4th round, the competitor with the lowest score was eliminated for each round resulting in the top 2 fighting for gold in the last round.The total score from all 40 shots was used to determine final ranking.
