Need dimensions of a 5 spot target face
Can anyone point me in the direction of a 5 spot target face with dimensions shown or described?
Interested in X ring, 5 ring and 4 ring size plus distance between the center of each X.
I have looked all over the www.nfaa-archery.org and www.ifaaarchery.org sites and can't find this information.

Do you know the distance the X's are apart?

I'm putting a tape to one for you right now. I am guessing the true dimensions are metric but I'll give you the closest in inches.
x- 1 19/32"
5- 3 5/32"
4- 6 9/32"(that's the biggest of the 2 "4" rings)

You beat me to it....I do find it interesting that the 5 ring is over 3" which means that everyone that says they shoot 1" groups for every 10yrds means that they all score 300 from 30yrds on the 5 spot every time. Heck, I guess we should just back it up since 20yrds must be so easy for most

I think what the OP is asking is "not" the dimensions of a single target. If I understand the post correctly he is asking the distance between the 5 targets on a single target face.
So why am I butting in? - I've been looking the answer myself.

Again, I am sure it's really a metric measurement but is this what you want in inches. From the 4 corners of the square, the center X places itself where it goes.

That is great. I was actually thinking of making one for my basement range. My range is 12 yards so I was going to make a target that is 12/20 th the size of a 5 spot target. I think it would be very similar in practicing at 20 yard range. What do you guys think? Would this work pretty good?
Here is what I plan on doing:
X 1.575 =0.945
5 3.15 =1.89
4 6.299 =3.7794
3 9.449 =5.6694
2 12.598 =7.5588
1 15.748 =9.4488

I don't think it would hurt. You may want to go buy a full size target and then take it to kinko's or similar copy shop. See if they can print it at 60% and that should do it....I think.

Thanks to all.
I picked up a plotter the other day and can now make larger prints. I already have and use AutoCAD, just didn't have any way of plotting other than work which is a no-no.
I can make my own real size targets now. Just have to play with the line weights. Been thinking of plotting a target to practice on that is just X-rings as well. Not sure if that would help me focus on just the X's or not.

Center to Center, the outside spots are 25cm apart.

Click on downloads on the left side of the screen and you can print your own targets in color, B&W or grey. Plus there are NFAA 5 spots and Vegas faces using the XPrint program. You can also download XSight to print sight tapes.
