Air powered guns have their place and are big fun as well as very useful within a realistic power range of up to 200 ft.lbs max.  As you attempt to move into powder burner range things just get silly.  You get a gun that will make 1 or 2 shots per fill and it wont even come close to matching the hotter pistol rounds.  We are limited to a max of around 4000 psi unless you want to go to a nitrogen setup.  Even the weakest pistol rounds run around 10,000 psi with high powered rifles run 60,000 psi.  If you want to shoot a gun with powder burner power just shoot a powder burner.
