Here's a nice little shooter I banded up today. Its one of the stronger ones of the batch completed recently. I started it off with AusBand Blue (15mm x 170mm) but it broke after only about 50 shots. So I dug deeper into the parts bag and pulled out some pieces of 1745 Tubing. Figured I'd give it a go and see how it went.
Turns out its a good combo
Shooting from 5m it tore a can to shreds no problems using Galvanised M6 nuts. At one point, a ricochet came back and hit me on the chin.. Lucky I was wearing safety glasses! I used a HD Canvas workbag as a backstop and as you can see in the second pic, it handles full strength shots with nary a mark. The third pic shows that the bench isnt so tough tho (oops!!). Fourth pic shows the attachment method, which is namely a large number of wraps with the band tie
Here's the pics!!
