Question ID: 716962

I am looking for the specifications and dimensions of all of the
official NRA shooting targets.

The specifications should provide enough information to draft and
create the targets with the exact dimensions.

Ideally, the answer would provide me with an exact reference to this
information in a free source, such as a credible website.  However,
exact references to sources I would need to pay for (such as a book)
is acceptable, as long as this source does not cost more than $50 US.

Licensed manufactures of these targets can be found here:

Hello fatcow-ga ,

Thank you for your question.

I think I found a very interesting soulution for you.

MCW Technologies sells a very inexpensive product called Target
Express that runs on Windows and prints over 500 targets. Some of the
things they note are:

"...Over 500 printable targets! Hundreds of pistol and rifle targets
designed for printing from your computer. These are hi-quality vector
drawn targets, not bitmap images. So you get clean crisp looking
prints from every target. TargetExpress is great for archery too!

TargetExpress includes:
IPSC targets 
IPDA targets 
NRA targets 
ISSF targets 
IBS targets 
Military and LE targets 
IHMSA animal silhouettes 
Realistic animal targets  
100 and 200 yard MOA sighting targets 
50 yard small bore targets 
Standard 25 yard pistol targets 
TargetWizard for creating you own targets  
Target tiling option for tiling small targets  
and much more...

Most targets are designed for 8.5" x 11" paper.  Most targets have
regular, ink saving, and hi-visiblity orange versions. The new
TargetWizard option allows you to create your own targets.  A new
target tiling option allows you to tile small targets to fill a
printer page.  TargetExpress has a scale target for distance feature
that can scale targets out to 1000 meters. For larger targets,
TargetExpress will print tiled pages that can be trimmed and taped
together to produce the full size target.  Large targets can also be
scaled down to fit any size paper. TargetExpress has a convenient
build in thumbnail viewer to quickly view and select the targets you
wish to print.

We could show you thumbnails of all our targets but why not download
TargetExpress now and see them for yourself!  Try the full working
demo for 14 days free.  If during that time you would like to register
TargetExpress, it cost only $14.95

TargetExpress can print your targets too! Just add your targets (in
JPG, BMP, or WMF format) to the My Targets directory.  TargetExpress
will display and print them..."

I can't be sure this will include ALL NRA targets and I do know that
some official targets are larger than 8.5 x 11". But this may be a
viable solution for you.

You can dwnload a free demo copy to be sure and view screenshots on their site.

If this solves your need, please let me know and I would be pleased to
provide it as the official answer. If it mises the mark, so to speak,
let me know what else might be required and myself or another
researcher will attempt to find more information.

Thank you for your reply clouseau.  I am already aware of this
software program, but unfortunately it will not work for the purposes
I need.

I'm looking for the dimensions of the targets, not a program that will
print them off for me.

I was able to find the solution to my question through the NRA
official rulebooks,

Thanks though,
