I recently switched target faces from the 60cm size to the 40cm size @ 20 yds.
When I was using the 60cm target face I would more times than not break the 100 point mark using the S.C. A. standard of 5 points for gold then 4,3,2,1 from red out to white FITA target face. that's shooting 6 flights of six arrows each.
When using the 40 cm FITA target face and the same scoring system and number of arrows I consider myself lucky to break 80.... could the 20 cm difference in size be that daunting?

Its actually smaller.
If you think about the area that target takes pi r^2

60cm circle = 3.14x30x30 = 2826cm^2
40m circle = 3.14x20x20 = 1256cm^2

(2826 - 1256) / 2826 = 55% smaller
