    Welcome to the forum!
    If your draw length is in the 30-inch (76cm) range, I suspect the .5mm will handle up to 3/8 (9.5mm) to 10mm steel ammo well. The .6mm bands may get 12mm or 1/2-inch steel moving fast enough to make most shooters happy, although it will probably arc noticeably.
    If you are shooting butterfly, I suspect either band will shoot the big ammo fairly flat at this taper.

    Thanks for reply I am using 32 inch draw. Been using 7mm on 0.6 and trying 6mm on 0.5 but will try the sizes you say. Again thanks.
