    Hello slingshot enthusiasts!
    Slingshooting with my granddad is a very fond childhood memory for me. Recently got back into it. Made a couple of plywood frames, made some leather pouches and cut some exercise latex for the bands. Shot marbles at tins and had a blast.

    Gathered some information from your forum and placed my first orders for latex, pouches and frames. Optimizing for light draw, I went for the 0.45 Precise with 6mm steel. Only plinking and target shooting..

    Thanks again for all the information you're sharing.

    Hello, welcome to the forum. :)
    Your ammo choice seems fantastic to me, 6mm is my favorite ammo for its reach and speed.
    I prefer 0.35mm latex, 21mm / 14mm taper bands and with them I can shoot steel from 4.5mm to 8mm really fast
