How many shots do you get with an RT? 45/4500 vs 68/4500

Thanks.

Mags are notoriously bad on efficiency compared to most other guns

I've shot through on numerous occasions a full hopper and what I carry out which is 6 Dye lock-lids and have right under 1k left in a 68ci 4500psi tank. You can probably get another pod or so out of whats left.

So roughly a good 1200 to 1300 shots.

Edit: If you have air all day....Efficacy is moot.

Probably not, after 1000 psi you start getting shootdown QUICK.

As for all day air, well, yes and no. For speedball, or rec games, sure. I play mostly scenario and air usage has been the biggest downside of my Mag so far. Although its so well set up that I really don't need to shoot as much paint with it as I have other guns to be equally effective. Thats the beauty of nailing an ergonomic setup.

I get the same efficiency as BigEvil out of my mag with X valve and normally can shoot it down to about 600 psi left in the tank. Granted that last pod that BigEvil is talking about ends up shooting out and dropping closer and closer to you at the end
The trick I find, is to stay OFF the RT and you'll be fine.

Technically speaking they are about average when it comes to efficiency, they just can't shoot 'deep' into a tank, so the shots per tank is lower than most.

Eh... I said what?

But I concure with what Dmex is saying. Last time I "shot my pack" was at the West Point spring game. Etac + 68/4500 dynaflow, not even a good paint to barrel match and I still shot all 6 of my pods and the 240 rounds in my prophecy. I had 1000 psi left in the tank.

My M90 Pnuemag only gets slightly worst. Shooting the same I would have roughly 800 psi left.

The trick is to use the smallest main spring, a short on/off pin (to get speed without having to jack up the input pressure into the gun) and a tank with excellent recharge. I really dont pay too much attention to the barrel / paint match but I try to get it close. Some of my barrel kits only go down to .684.

Yes, they are not as efficient as other guns, but it is rarely if ever an issue. I always have enough air to shoot what I carry.

You can shoot a mag well well below 1000 psi still in the tank. They require at a minimum 800 for peek efficiency but will still cycle till about 650. Hell, 12 grams only give you roughly 700 psi which I use all the time on my 6Pak and mag. Granted you can't RT or get on it (pass 3-5bps) at that pressure but it will cycle. Depending on your setup which BE touched on a few points, you can get pretty low in the tank.

Level 10s require a higher pressure to operate, I thought, so a Level 10 equipped gun won't shoot as deep into the tank when compared to a Level 7 gun. It is just something to note when talking about Automags and efficiency.
