    Hi,<br>I think lead is the best ammo for hunting and if i am not wrong, 12mm would do the job for animals like rabbits. For smaller, like birds, 6mm to 10mm is ok. I don' t hunt so if i am wrong, correct me please.

    With good bands(good speed and joules), 12 mm lead and up, for steel i thought it was 14 mm and up, bigger is better but 30 mm hex nuts!? What bands do you use for that?<br><br>Ps, i do not hunt, but this is what i have picked up, so i am not 100% sure

    Use lead or steel cylindrical slugs aka rods ... 10 grams (150 grains) more than enough for the rabbits ...

    <font color="darkblue">Not really sure what type of bands. <br><br>I just got the strongest I could for my current well made commercial slingshot.<br><br>But will be getting alot better soon with an order to Bill Hays for a few slingshots banded with powerful flat bands. <br>Along with an order to A1 for a couple of slingshot and accessories.<br><br>The time can not go fast enough for things to arrive.<br><br>Cheers Allan<br></font>
