Hey guys, before anyone goes hunting I recommend that they practice on these excellent targets first:

I would suggest that you attempt to take your quarry from no further than you can successfully hit all four targets in a row, and would recommend that you use metallic, spherical, projectiles with a mass of no less than 7 grams. With a minimum draw length of 28" and weight of 15lb... What do you guys think?

Here are some more from the same website, this time they imitate specific species:

An extremely talented of mine is even working on similar targets, made from high-resolution photographs of real animals, with the area of vital organs highlighted in red for me, and I may distribute them, pro bono, as per request.

Jmp, I belive you are using chains with the 5x3 you use, what draw weight do you estimate at 28" draw? I want to try them on the first natural I made. I am using Tex Express now and would like a similar weight, around 16#.
I cast my own 12mm lead shot, its a little rough but it works, I will also be casting 8mm as well.
As for bandsets at the moment I'm trying silver theraband and experimenting with different tapers on my homemade slingshots.
Awesome, I wish I could cast my own lead - my ignorant
father won't let me, on account of it being "Dangerous and bad for the environment."
Unfortunately 1.27mm steel doesn't always guarantee a clean kill, I'm just not convinced that it's dense enough, I'm going to purchase some 1.12mm lead from Perry, I can't wait to see what a 44.3% increment in density does to my steel and aluminium sheets!

same with me my dad wont let me do it
