SCUBA tanks are best for low fill guns. One of mine fills to 1450, another to 150 bar (about 2200 psi), one to 1900, and one to 250 bar (about 3600 psi). My SCUBA tanks work great for everything but the 3600 psi gun, it gets exactly zero complete fills. It does, however work nicely for getting that gun up into the high 2000s and then a short 50-60 stroke pump session gets me into the 230 bar range. 

If you structure your PCP purchases to low fill guns, or tune then that way when possible, a SCUBA tank will work and is a valid option, but an SCBA tank (4500psi) is gonna get you a lot further with most of the guns people are interested in these days.
