Hi all, I've just found an amazing setup to shoot 6mm steel balls with! Without really thinking about it, I measured out 18-12mm as the taper on the limited amount of .55 elastic I had left over, out of habit (that's the same taper my .66 bandsets are cut to for 8mm now), and when the ties and wraps were made, I test fired a few shots from about 5 yards on a thick cardboard box, and one on an empty dog food tin. The ball made a loud crack as it hit the tin, and went straight through, as you can see in the picture. Never before have I got that much power out of a 6mm shot before, with a slingshot. I definitely recommend trying it out.
