To save blitzing the post with numerous set ups,Ive put some in this single reply if thats ok

duck shot@15m,12mm lead,Orange dub dub ,semi butterfly draw , natural catapult

Partridge@ approx 10m, 10mm lead ,3x2040 aside.MIlbro pro shot Chilbro

Duck@12-15m,12mm 14mm lead.Green dub dub,Antler tabbed

Pheasant@10m,9.5mm lead,headshot with single silver theraband 25mm straight cut drawn 3/4 butterlfy GK chalice hybrid

Pheasant,both @ 10m ,14mm lead,Dankung taper tubes(worn in over a 100 or so shots,Natural tabbed catapult

pheasant@10-15m,14mm lead, neck shot,Gary Miller linatex set up,moulded pouch,on a Martin Coleman Ergo Hunter


All distances are approx.but I personally would never hunt over 20m,The hardest thing for me was allowing my 12 yr old son to make the shot on such a light set up,but he was confident in doing so,had cut a cotton bud clean in half at 35 ft using a tubed natural previously,and i knew i had the follow up

Any set up when used correctly will take game and put food on the table,its down to you to maintain consistancy,hitting a can from 40ft is one thing,hitting a live piece of game and then hopping from foot to foot because your shot wasnt clean is another,If you cant physically finish game ie if you dont get the clean shot,you shouldnt be taking the shot in the first place

cheers

Slingshot used is a TubeMaster Sniper/ Scorpion Hybrid, sporting a NightStalker attachment. It was banded up with 2040 tubes setup for a 55" draw... this combo fires a .50 cal lead ball at about 220 fps and a .41 cal at more than 260 fps.

Here's one of a feral guinea fowl....

 

He was running along next to a fence and I shot him dead in the head with .50 caliber steel moving about 240 fps.

Slingshot used was a regular TubeMaster Sniper fixed up with long draw 2040 tubes.

the ball entered the skull and did not exit , providing optimal energy dissipation for even this hardy vermin.

i have taken several more game with this catapult and it never grows old for me.

At the Thread Parent's request, I have hidden a number of posts. Please do not post simply to remark on another post. This is intended to be a reference guide for beginner hunters and a lot of extra comment simply makes it harder to find useful information.

 

BTW, I decided which posts to hide, so don't get mad at Hrawk.

Very great shooting for the above post.

Cheers Allan

 

 

Hey everyone first post !!, I see the smallest ammo mentioned here is 8mm steel. I have been hunting with 10 and 12 mm lead as of late and have found it very effective, however I'm not a fan of the very heavy bands needed and lead is expensive to buy, so I pose the question is .25 of an inch too small???, I have discovered some non branded stretch bands here in Ireland and have discovered that when set up at 3/4 to 1/2 inch taper and double strips and accompanied with .25 inch steel that they are quite zippy, obviously not much stopping power but I wonder if the high speed and penetration is sufficient, plz share your thoughts. Thnx

 

Please read the first post.

 

This thread IS NOT FOR DISCUSSION or comments on peoples setups. It is a reference thread of proven effective hunting setups only.
