even my brocock concept .22 at 11 foot pounds will do 70 shot with out having to do a refill.it has a very small air tube. it only takes about 4o to 45 pumps.i fill it from 165 bar and shoot down to 100

​my day state air wolf wolf is rated to 230 bar but I fill to 180 bar and shot down to 80 bar. I get 220 shots at 15 foot pounds .177
and it has a 500 cc bottle.

​a bigger bottle will always take longer to pump. it takes more are volume and more pumping to fill a bigger bottle.
a smaller bottle is much quicker to fill up to needed pressure.
​if you pump during a shooting sessions you air pressure will spike if you do it quickly and give u false readings as it cools down.
always good to wait a few mins at least half way through to start pumping again.

if you go with a gun like the air wolf you can go many sessions with out having to pump at all!
trust me not having to pump during a session is the best way to go
