    Well, it took me a whole month; but I finally determined how many bottle fills on my FX Impact 30 I get from a full 4,500 psi fill from my Omega 75 cu-ft carbon fiber tank! (I’m diggin’ my new Omega Air Charger, BTW :-).) And the number of said fills is… 13!!! This translates to 520 shots!

    Wow, I shot only 520 pellets in the last month?! Well, as I’ve said before; I’m a hunter, not a plinker.

    I’m a plinker, i shot about 2000 pellets last month, granted not from an impact, but still great fun.

    D2 daystate compressor, omega 75 and two scuba tank cascade system, plenty of air, so i experiment with the 3 guns, happens when air is not an issue.

    Well, jlc; I see your point now that I have my own compressor! I used to dread the prospect of using my handpump (even the 4-stage FX) when my bottle got low. Since I’ve got my compressor, I have been engaging in a fair amount of pure fun plinkin’! I rationalize it by sayin’ I’m just ranging my scope, but it’s just really fun :-)

    I filled my 80 CU scuba tank, from  2000 to 3200 and the omega from 3000 to 4200 this morning, the 117 scuba tank, a bit on the heavy side still had 3000 psi and that one is used in the cascade with the 80 and not worth the effort to top it off.. I only fill the Marauder 22 and 177 to 2500 psi. and use the cascade for these guns.  I use the scba for the 25 that i shoot at 28 to 2900.

    It was 50 degrees in the garage this morning so a good time to run the compressor, probably better than 85 degrees at the end of the week.  Filling both of those tanks only took a total of 11 min run time on the compressor. ( 6 and 5 minutes ).

    For information purposes: I keep a log of the compressor times, psi date etc in my phone.

    Shooting some, almost every day,  i still only top off the tanks, every 2 to 3 weeks.

    Yeah not being concerned about air has me ranging and screwing around, where as before every pellet counted.

    I also keep meticulous logs of compressor times, primarily for maintenance purposes; but it is useful to know capacities as well.
