The 20 shots per capsule is what struck me most about that article .. That's markedly low for a nelson of any sort, I think ..

The only explanation I can come up with is that back then 290-300 fps was the goal.

True. But it's strange that you can get 40 at 275, but only 20 at 290 ? That curve must be more exponential than I'd thought.


I do like how they hint at shooting hotter than that to get more range .. the good ole days.

I'm not sure how much it will help "date" things. But Team Swarm ran with custom Piranha SB's that had the side air tube replaced with a pigtail of brass/copper line between the side tap and rear asa. Then they installed a rat attack in the asa. They also used the WGP 45 rd boxes with the scope flip caps. Again as has been said this was to meet the requirement of some tournies that were still 12g only.

Cool little guns too!

What strikes me most about this thread as that someone needs to host those magazine scan images somewhere other than imageshack. It will suck if they get lost.
