    I have two questions about paper scoring. How do you score X's on a five spot? On another post on this sight I saw scores such s "293 40-X" and 300 55-X". I witnessed a 596 45X. That was with 60 shots. How can you get more than 30 X in a 300?

    you shoot 5 arrows an end for 12 ends. That's 60 arrows.

    the white wring on a NFAA target is 5 points inside the white ring is another circle a little bigger than a quarter that has an X in it. If you shoot the X it's still only 5 points for that arrow there are 60 arrows shot in a match for a total of only 300 points and the number of spots breaks any ties..

    JC, you just about confused me good. I never heard of a bull counting as a 5. Tank you for the explaination bull. I now understand. Is this the normal way of scoring? I can't imagine that my area is THAT far behind the rest of the world. Mind ya, I am new to this. I am not trying to affend anybody, I am just trying to learn. Thanks.

    I forgot to mention that the 5 spot targets that I have seen have a circle and the X is half that size without a circle around it. That is the reason for the question on how to score the X.

    Yes that is the standard NFAA rules for a 300 round. Now I will tell you that folks also shoot a Vegas target and it scores differently than a standard 5 spot. I personally have never shot a Vegas round but there are others who have here.

    Sorry about the confusion......:lol:

    On the NFAA 5 spot each spot is worth 5 pts. 5 pts x 5 spots equals a max of 25 points per end with 5 x's. 12 ends x 25 points equals 300.

    Thanks guys. Like I said, I am new to this. What is the NFAA? I guess that on another post I wrote that I was tickled with my 291 14X. That doesn't sound near so good with the 5 bull. I was shooting vegas. :noidea:

    291-14x is a good score on the vegas face. The x is a lot smaller than on the nfaa 5 spot.

    Here is a set of rules that might help it does look like pros shoot a 360 round but I have never seen it done..
    Indiana Field Archery Association

    1. We will shoot two NFAA Indoor 300 Rounds at 20 yards.

    2. Archers are to stand astride the shooting line.

    3. We will shoot 12 ends; 5 arrows each end; a total of 60 arrows each day,
    Shooting a total of two days.

    4. Scoring on a single spot is 5-4-3-2-1-. Multispot is 5-4. Pros will shoot a 360
    round. The arrow shaft must cut through the line or touch the white area of
    the 5 ring to score in the area of highest value.

    5. Bounce outs are to be shot over immediately.

    6. An arrow buried in the target that cannot be seen must be pushed back
    through the target. Do not push another back through beside it.

    7. An arrow that passes through the target & falls out behind the target may
    be reshot at once upon returning to the shooting line. Call a field Captain
    to verify the arrow before touching it.

    8. No arrows are to be touched until all arrows are scored.

    9. One archer will keep the original score cards and one will keep the
    duplicate. Check and sign you cart verifying you agree with the score
    before handing it in.

    10. Select a target Captain to call arrows. If help is needed on a call, signal a
    field captain. HIS DECISION IS FINAL.

    11. If more that 5 arrows are shot, the arrow or arrows of highest value will
    not be counted. And a penalty of one point will be accessed for each arrow
    shot over the prescribed number.

    12. You have 4 minutes in which to shoot 5 arrows. An arrow shot after the
    whistle will not be counted.

    13. Shoot on whistle – one whistle to start; two whistles to stop shooting.

    14. Line one will shoot the bottom target, line 2 will shoot top target.
    Halfway, you will reverse.

    15. In the case of an equipment failure, you will have 15 minutes repair time.
    You will be allowed one practice end. You will shoot the missed arrow(s)
    after the last end.

    16. No protest are to be filed or mentioned until every archer has shot his 60
    arrows. A protest must be in writing, signed & presented to the officers
    along with a $25.00 protest fee.

    17. No alcoholic beverages are to be consumed by archers during your
    shooting hours. This is the first warning; the second may cause you to be
    disqualified.

    18. There is to be no smoking on or in front of the shooting line. This is your
    first warning, the second may cause you to be disqualified.

    19. Be courteous to your fellow archers, there is to be no loud talking.

    20. You will stay on the shooting line until you have shot all five arrows.
    There is to be no walking on and off the line between arrows. You should
    not leave the line while the archers on either side of you are at full draw.
    Please have consideration for your fellow archers.

    21. Laser sights are not permitted.

    22. All archers must have proper quivers to keep arrows contained and that
    will not interfere with other shooters while on the shooting line. With

    Thank you for taking the time to post that bullfiddle. I will have to ask, does "stand astride the shooting line " mean that the back foot can be touching?

    Thanks, I'm always trying to learn. dkoutdoors posted a pick under general archery-FOB shoters sound off . Half way down page 1 is a target. How do you determine an X. Do you guess where the circle would be?

    You count the x if your arrow is inside of or touches the line of the small circle around the x.
