Let me add to the chorus for #64 office bands, cut open, one per side. A chain of #32s offers similar performance, as do sections of 117b.

If you have flat latex on hand, 1/4 inch cuts work with most, and leave them 1/4 your draw length or longer.

For round latex, I favor 2mm solid band tying material.

Can't go wrong with rubber bands. And Alliance Advantage have been good for me. I get mine on Amazon.
I buy my 117b bands from Amazon but I get Alliance Sterling. Sterling has a higher rubber content than Advantage.

I occasionally experiment with #64 but I just grab the Alliance Advantage at Wal-Mart.

The Gold has the highest rubber content but I have read that it doesn't retract very fast. Sterling has the next highest content and Advantage has the least.

Just today, I tried out 1cm wide, 0.45mm thick bands for shooting 6mm plastic BBs. They work fantastic indoors! I can hit little bottle caps as far as 7 meters. They are strong enough to create a straight flight, but they are light enough to not cause turbulence. See them in action in the video below:
