how big of tanks are you guys running? and does anybody have a rough est on how many shots they can get

48 ci 3000 psi tanks are semi cheap around here but my buddy tried one on his 98 with 20 in barrel and responce trigger and shot 3 pods before it was empty. im sure he has the velocity cranked but im not sure if that tank is big enough for a day with a vs2. in the market for a vs2

A basic estimate on how many shots you will get is:

If you are running a 3000 tank multiply the Cubic inch number by 10

If you are running a 4500 tank multiply the Cubic inch number by 15

heres a calculator, iv never really tested it but it is pretty close when i think about it

Scuab Toys - Calculator (http://www.scubatoys.com/paintball/paintballshots.asp)
i run a 68/4500, it gets alot of shots when i run my gun on 230

also invest in a 4500 tank or like a 72/3000, they are worth it, but if you get a 4500 get a glass, carbon, something lite
