    Thought I would try a different company for 8mm steel. It cost a little less and took 1 month to arrive but they sent the wrong size. Looks like 5mm at first glance.

    I've been making slingshots for a while now, but I haven't got around to too much hunting. This morning I looked out the window and saw a small pidgeon sitting in a tree and took a shot.

    Ok, so I am wanting to make my own dankung style slingshot out of 1/2 inch either aluminum or plain steel rod. I already know that the aluminum would be lighter but would it have the strength for a heavier pull? Before I forget, I am going to be using tubes on it as well.
