I don't think there is one ammo/band combination that is "ideal" for everyone.

You seem to be on the right track with the 12.5mm steel. Your current speed may be a little on the low side, just because headshots aren't guaranteed for most of us. A good thing is that you don't seem to be in a hurry. You can shoot your current setup for a few thousand more shots while figuring out the next step.

You may shoot until you see a band tear near the pouch (the most common spot) and then recut those bands an inch or so shorter than the initial length and retie the pouch. I'm thinking you'll get more performance with a manageable increase in draw weight.

I would keep tapers in mind though. And you may try a set of looped 2040 tubes as well. They are noticeably quieter than flats.

Good luck.
