NTIT

The National Trophy Infantry Team Match (NTIT) is a National Trophy Rifle Match that was first fired in 1922. The NTIT is sometimes called the “rattle battle” because it emphasizes extremely fast, accurate fire. It is also an exciting competition for spectators to watch.

A team with six shooters and two coaches/team leaders begin with 384 rounds to allocate among team members. Beginning at 600 yards, shooters must distribute their fire so that, if possible, all eight targets receive at least six hits in 50 seconds. Firing continues at 500, then 300, and 200 until all ammunition is expended. E-type silhouettes are used at the longer ranges and F-type “dog” silhouettes are used at the shorter ranges. Hits at 600 yards count four points, at 500 yards, three points, at 300 yards, two points and at 200 yards, one point, plus each team receives a bonus at each yard line equal to the square of the number of targets with six or more hits.

USARCMP took first place and were the 2018 National Trophy Infantry Team Match Champions. This is the first time since 1992 that the U.S. Army Reserve has won this match.

The USARCMP also broke the Celtic Chieftain Trophy record for high Reserve Component Team which stood since 1985.
