After broken in, some people claim to sqeeze a case off of a 68/45. all depends though.

But dont forget, you use more gas/n2 when dryfiring, so expect that count to be cut down than more than half.

i would call that bs, mavy there shooting at 200 fps and haveing major shoot downs of sum thing because there is no gun that cn get 2000 real shots per tank. i think 1500 would be the norm thats what the ledgends get.

Have you ever shot a cyborg? I can personally attest to getting >2000 full velocity (280fps) shots from a STOCK, well broken in 06 cyborg using reballs and a cold 68/45 full fill.

Dwell 8
HPR 205
LPR around 60

If you go to fusion owners forum, there's a couple counts. Also, I haven't heard of anyone getting a case off, but 1700-1800 is definetely normal.

Not true it depends on the tank. Viking/Excal owners get up to a case off a 68/45.

I shoot at 265-270 fps, which is what I shoot with all my markers. I get no shoot down or anything like that. That was with no dry firing, I only shot paint. I also never broke a single paintball last weekend either, it was a pretty good day.

I've calculated that my Fusion would get about 1650+ shots off a 68/45.

I did this by firing 200 rounds, then calculating the difference in PSI and extrapolating my data from that. I have the equations if you'd like to see them . . .

I own a '03 Viking and a '04 Cyborg both of which get atleast 2000 off of a cold 68/4500 fill @ 275fps. My Viking is a little more efficient. My Fusion which is not broken in yet got about 1200 off of a warm 68/4500 fill this weekend. So I could see getting maybe 1600 when broken in. I am using a Pure energy tank btw.

hi im sorry if this question angers some of you but i need to know, when it says the cubic inches on the tank, does that matter? because i honestly dont see the difference in a 68/3000 to a 68/4500. i shot both and they both are the same to me i just go by the total it holds in psi like 3000 or 4500.

Higher psi= more air in the enclosed area.

the tank is what holds the higher psi, if u put 4500psi into ur gun, u better run away real fast.

correct me if im wrong but doesnt the reg on the tank give out about 700-800psi, then ur hpr/opr puts it down to the recommended 250?
