Its not by a huge amount, but it is more efficient.
If you read around about what others say on how many pods they can get off, its generally scattered. Dwell settings and boring have a lot to do with these inconsistencies.
Ballparking here, but i'd say its a very good rough estimate:
Ego 11 - 9 pods off a 4100 fill
G6R - 12-13 pods off a 4100 fill (bob long made a video of his personally tuned G6R getting 21 pods.... but i dont know how well i believe it.)
It seems you can get an Ego11 or a 2011 G6R for about the same price... if luck you can get a 2k12 G6R for 700. Personally, I'm going to say the G6R is all around the better gun. Not knocking the ego at all, its still a fantastic gun, but at the end of the day, i'd have to tip my hat to the G6R.
