    Default Air conversion/expansion rates....

    If I had a carbon bottle of 48CU, at a max pressure of 310 bar, how many fills of 200 bar would I get into my AA510 Carbine.

    I have no idea how big the gun's reservoir is, so maybe work on a standard 410 as a benchmark?

    Thanks

    48cu is about 3/4 ltr (786cc to be precise). I think the AA410 has a 190cc reservoir or thereabout. My 6l 300bar tank fills a 410 to 200bar about 30x. Taking this all into account I guess you would get about 4 fills.

    I'm looking at ultra portability options

    That would be enough for a day's shoot, or a day in the field hunting?

    Fox, do you have a pressure regulator or any other part for filling a 200 BAR rifle from a 300BAR bottle? I also want to buy a 300BAR bottle but I dont want to 'break' my rifle.
    Or do you just slowly charge your rifle?

    Just fill slowly and carefully and it has never been a problem...

    You could go for a 4500psi (310bar) 68ci (cubic inch) carbon fiber tank. Thats about 1ltr which should get you 6 fills. They're approx R2k new.

    Just checked ebay and the 310bar (4500psi) fiber warp bottles are available up to 110ci (1.8ltr). I think this would be the ultimate option...!
