    From the above website
    The Olympic Shooting Competition will be held from 9 Aug (Day 1) to 17 Aug (Day 9) 2008 at Beijing Olympic Shooting Centre

    10m Air Rifle Men and Women
    Air Rifles are 4.5mm (.177”) with a maximum weight of 5.5 kg from which the pellet is propelled by air compressed either by an external lever or by a pre-compressed air cylinder. The stock is shaped for comfort but this together with the rifle and sights have many restrictions regarding dimensions under the rules. Only “metallic” sights are permitted-see rifle sights. In the main competition, only the entire rings are counted. The men complete 60 shots in 105 minutes with any number of sighting shots before the first competition shot is fired. The women complete 40 shots within a maximum of 75 minutes, including the sighting shots. The shots are fired in the standing position at a very thin, "pinhead" centre of exactly 0.5 mm at a distance of 10 meters.
    In the following final, each of the eight finalists only has 75 seconds to fire each of his 10 final shots. The points achieved are subdivided into tenths. A shot that hits directly in the centre of the ten counts as a 10.9, whereas a shot just barely is touching the centre counts as 10.0. The results from the normal program and the final are added together.

    They also seem to make their way onto youtube fairly quickly. These guys and girls are robots! They can't be human - amazing to watch considering the inner dot is 0.5mm
