See, tapered flatbands have a remarkably good draw weight / power output relation. The means you can use bands with significantly less pull force.
Thinner bands (black/silver) improves the performance a bit, at the cost of band life. But even Gold Theraband will allow you to use band sets with
less drawing weight.

I'm not a hunter myself, but know a number of very competent enthusiasts who bring home their meat with bands that are a good deal below the drawing
weight of an 8-string 2040. The correct choice of ammunition is much more important (and your 9m lead ball is a good choice).

It depends on distance and quarry, but a bandset made of Theraband Gold with double bands tapering from 2cm to 1.5cm are considered adequate for anything
up to rabbits when used with well-sized lead balls.
