    <strong>Hi<br> guys, I'm after a bit of advice if possible- what's the lightest bandset and ammo capable of being used for hunting? I've just head that <br>just a 3ft/lb shot to the head is enough to drop a rabbit, surely that <br>cant be right? that's less clout than a UK legal airpistol (only 60%) which would mean DanKung Tubes, and single TBG are viable hunting bands with smaller (even 6mm) ammo?<br></strong>

    we have just been having a BIG dicussion about this on another forum, and the conclusion we got was that it IS possible to kill rabbits and other game with a light ammo and weak bands but you always risk the chance of it getting away injured, <br><br>wereas a heavier lead ball and powerful bands will get the job done much better <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><br>personaly i wouldn't go hunting with light bands and 6mm steel lol

    Hi John thanks for that, I don't suppose you could post a link to that discussion, as I suspect a certain mate of mine might have seen it lol which is where last night's argument stemmed from <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
