    It's the lower bound for the minimum strength requirement. My overall impression is that being able to bench press a given weight does not entail being able to use a bow with the same draw weight.

    Although yes, hunting bows do typically have a much lower draw weight than military ones. It's not as bad a trope as I made it out to be.
