47/3000 gets about 450-470 shots. So about 500 shots from a 50/3000

Estimating how many shots per tank you get from a particular sized bottle is like estimating how many miles per gallon you get from particular sized tank on a vehicle. It really depends on the relativity of what type of vehicle you're using. Some get great gas milage and some don't. Another factor is once you get to around 500psi on an HPA tank, STBB's are pretty much ready to start jackhammering. EP's on the other hand don't need as much pressure to recock, therefore will still recock for a little while longer.

Welp, it depends on the weather conditions, your marker's normal HPA efficiency, and the lube's status (if it's old and paint infested the marker wont be as efficient as if it was new lube). I personally was getting about 700-750 shots from my 48/3k with my Spyder back in the day, so it's perfectly possible to get good efficiency from them so long as they are equipped and tuned properly. As for a stock Spyder... I'd not say they'd do so well. Closer to BackManShooter's numbers. A to Drago as well.
