View Full Version : Good shots per fill???

10-18-2007, 05:20 PM
I just got done shooting re-balls in my basement a bit ago. It has been raining for the last week so I needed to let loose inside with my PM6.... :D

I filled my 68/4500 from my scuba tank. The fill came out to about 2500 or so PSI. I ended up putting seven 140 round pods through my marker before I ran out of air.

The only real non-stock internal in the PM6 is the Orange Bolt I stuck into it. All the settings are stock on the marker / board (LPR, HPR turns & dwell). I am pretty impressed with the amount of shots I got out of the tank that I don't really want to mess around with the dwell and so on.

Does this seem to be a pretty high shot count to you guys? I did a search for shot counts and didn't really find out much....just wondering what everyone else usually "averages" on shots per fill and if you think mine is pretty decent or if you think I should be getting more. Thanks for all the input everyone!

Indoor shooting temp; 68 degrees roughly
Velocity of PM6 - 283 +/- 3

SIDE NOTE: I checked Action Village's website for the "approximate shots per fill" and it says 700 on a 68/3000.

How many? :)LOL.

7 140 pods out of 2500..not bad. That means you'd have plenty of shots w/ a full fill. ;)

I suppose if I adjust the dwell, etc, I might be able to squeeze a little more out of it perhaps...

I could get a case out of a full 68/4500 fill with my old Ego.

I get a little around 3/4ths a case with my T-1 on a 68/4500. I was wowing myself the other day in comparison to my old 3000.

So with a full fill I am not doing too shabby! :p
