    Guys, I’m a new 25 cal Wildcat owner and do not have a chronograph yet. My question is, how low should I go on the air pressure before I bring the cylinder back up to 230 bar. Thanks for the help, Tom

    My Wildcat reg is set at 138 from the factory. I usually air up at 140 or 150

    It will come of the regulator at 140 bar….so that’s when I top it back off. Congrats on your new shooter.

    Typically you want to fill a little before it’s below the reg, as your first shot after the fill will be a little off. So it’s kind of up to you.

    Congrats on the new kitty! As others have mentioned reg is set at 140ish, I refill around 150 to be safe. Cheers!

    The answers above are all great answers but sometimes you find yourself out hunting & you are down to 140 bar. You can shoot a target to see how much drop you have then use that as your new zero. This can get you a few extra shots.

    Here is the correct answer to your question.

    We are talking about opposing forces.
    The regulator on an FX Wildcat is set to roughly 140-150.
    They are all different within a few bar.

    Once the pressure in your bottle/tube drops below the regulaters set pressure, you have fallen off the regulator.
    This will cause your projectiles to hit low on target.
    With other drift effects.

    Your odds of making an at caliber group at 50 yards increase greatly if you do not ” fall off the regulator.
    That gun will get 40 shots on the regulator depending how the hammer spring is set.
    Once your gauge  registers 154 or so, , top the gun off. It will never fall off the regulator.
