Are your producing the original PDF out of Scribus as A4 or A5 ?
Are you printing from reader using the page scaling option of "booklet 
printing" ?
If so are you printing directly or using something like PDFCreator to 
create another PDF already in the booklet format?
If you do not have already get PDFCreator or similar so that you can 
create a PDF already in booklet format.
Having produced that booklet formatted PDF look at while viewing in 
Reader (may need to zoom out) to see if the borders etc appear to be 
roughly what you want.
If so then it is going to be your print time options which could be in 
Reader and can also be your printer driver settings.
I have seen some HP inkjets that can not do duplex well, and can really 
mess the size of printed output while in the Reader you could see it was 
Try your pdf on another printer if can.
