I should probably mention I have 1632 and 2040 at home. I was useing 1632 for cufs and 2040 for targets. Would any of these work for 3/8 steel
Will it have a crazy draw weight? Sorry for all the questions. The last slingshot I shot with tubes was a marksman about 30 years ago.Looped 2040 will make 3/8 sing!

i am a short draw guy. 30". I have 1632 and 2040 at home so I should be able to make decent bands with what I have then. Tubes seem to be a whole other animal.It all depends on your draw length. I use single 2040s with a 50" draw for 3/8" steel. I use looped 1632s with a shorter draw. They both have fairly easy pulls.Hey guys, I ordered a looped band slingshot just to give tubes a try for something different. I typically shoot 9.5 (3/8) steel. What would be a good tube for this size ammo?
So with a looped bandset they should fly pretty nice then?With a 30 inch draw Loops of either the 1632 or 2040 will be okay for 3/8-inch steel. We tube shooter tend to play with the length to find the right balance of draw weight and performance.
Single 2040s are okay for plinking with 3/8 if they are kept around 5-1/2 to 6 inches in length so they really get stretched.
Perfect. That means I am just waiting on the frame. I was expecting a little trial and error I just wanted to make sure I didn't end up buying bands too weak or way too strong.Yeah, looped 1632 should do just fine. Like KawKan mentioned, it might take a little trial and error to find your "sweet spot".
