I want to make a primitive sling, akin to those used to sling a rock over your head. The precursor to the rubber band sling shot.

Where these made with leather, gut, weaved hair or grass? How long such the lead be? I have a desire to make one, but don't know that the proper material is and steps to make something. I have generic ideas, but I'd prefer advice from those that already know.

have a look to youtube too: primitive slings are a growing passion between south america young boys and there are plenty of videos if i remember from chile, with differents ammo and sizes. What a fist-size round stone cand do at 20-30 meters distance is impressive, jus like Bible say
