So, I see your dilemma.

The bands are cut to a fairly potent taper. They might give you hand-slap with ammo lighter that 3/8-inch steel.

But the pouch is about the minimum size for that ammo.

Like many of us, I have shot a lot of 3/8 with those pouches, but prefer something a bigger - 2 to 2-1/2 inches long keeps my fingers off the ties.

If you shoot the 3/8 take care to center the ammo every shot (a great habit anyway).

If you shoot anything smaller, you may want to set up the band length so the relaxed length (fork tie to pouch tie) is 1/4 or a little more of your draw length. That is a lighter draw and less power than cutting to 1/5 the draw length and may reduce hand-slap.

May be a good time to try some alternative pouches though!

Good luck!
