My Marauder has a 215CC reservoir.    30 shots = about 100 strokes, or three strokes per shot from 1800 to 2800 PSi.  Might be a little less no a Hill pump, but no less than 80 or 90 strokes.  

From 1800 PSI to about 2500 PSI it isn't bad.  That last 300 or 400 PSI is a real bear having to drop full body weight on the pump handle to drive it to the ground.  Granted, I'm not the healthiest, but still, it takes the fun out of shooting.  I bought this thing to shoot, not pump.

Anyway, as the story goes, I bought the gun, pumped it up a couple of times, and realized it wasn't any fun to pump and bought a tank.  Best investment ever!  For the price of a good pump (about $225 for a Hilll??) you are over 2/3 of the way to a buddy tank at $350 that includes all the fill equipment.  Check it out, as it's a whole lot more fun that way.
