Try throwing with greek style. It will help you get the power-stroke timing. Give this a solid dozen, two dozen tries. If you can start getting power with this throw, then switching to your usual throw should help with power.

Take the pouch in your left hand, and then throw it behind you, at the same time, start the throw with your right.

I have finally achieved the ability to knock the treetops off thanx guys!

Cheesy

I reduced ammo to the size of a egg or jumbo egg.

I can hit the tree tops with both balearic and greek styles.

Now all I need to do is push the barrier more.

I have found a new spot with a longer target pic in bound.

We are always happy to see pics or videos... it’s also a good way to track your own progress Smiley

Don't overdo it.  You're using muscles you haven't used much before.  Take it slow and give yourself several days between throwing sessions for recovery for now.

Sorry, but it's a pet peeve of mine:  'Yea' isn't the word you want.  It's 'yeah'.  'Yea' is an anachronistic word you see in the King James bible. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Spellcheck, I shall fear no misspellings for thou art with me.  Thy dictionary and thy thesaurus, they comfort me.

Agreed.

When I was starting out I just spent a whole weekend going for it, and for the next week my arm and should was in its own world of numb pain.

Defiantly take brakes.

     If you really want some range try slinging golf balls.  If you can get a good backspin on them they'll fly over the hills and far, far away.

I used to think they didn't fly far because they would fall short of tennis balls when I slang them, even with long slings. But one day, I slang one far as hell with a short sling and was in utter shock. Great ammunition!
