Automag Volume Help

A'ight. From some research, I've come up with this info. Can someone please verify or deny this? I'm not trying to make any statements, just trying to figure out if this is true.

A mag dump chamber fills to a certain PSI before its sealed off, and eventually is used to push the ball down the barrel.

Aside: Perfect paintballs at 280 FPS shoots the same irregardless of pressure, pressure does not affect distance...


Therefore, increasing the volume of a mag dump chamber (magic box?) theoretically fills the mag dump chamber to the same PSI, but with more air. Therefore, the shot would feel "softer" but at the cost of poor efficiency.

Therefore, decreasing the volume of a mag dump chamber (hypermag?) theoretically fills the mag dump chamber to the same PSI, but with less air. Therefore, the shot would feel "harder" but at the benefit of efficiency.

Does this sound right? Or does air being at a lower pressure / higher pressure not affect efficiency in the least?

Thanks!
