    This is how I cut bands. The slide cutter I'm using is a Fiskars. Got it at Walmart.

      Just happen to purchase a new 5 pack of the Fiskars 45mm for the hand rotary cutter. 1st new 5 pack in years. Cutting material they have lasted. Cutting bands seems to dull them more rapidly. Thinking this tool would deliver more consistent 90 degree cuts. Always wondered if any wobble laterally when using a hand cutter effected the durability? Probably not. Over thinking this process. Need to just cut, band and go shoot.
