Geo efficiency with 45/45

I currently own a vice and its good on air but I like the way the geo shoots and feels. My only concern is how many pods id get off a 45/45 I'm debating between a geo and a droid because of efficiency. how many pods do you guys get with a 45/45?

So maybe 4 pods and a hopper? Would it make any difference at 280-285 fps?

I get about a rotor plus 4 or 5 pods in the original bolt.

Yes, changing from 300fps to 285gps can help increase shot count

Mine too.

That's 7+ pods if you can get a FULL FILL. Which almost no one can.

5 pods or a hair more off of a normal 3500-4000 hot fill is typical for me.

When I dwell tune it this is how low I was able to get it without any drop in velocity. Why should I put it at 14.5? How will this increase my not-so-great efficiency?

LOL. I would guess that's what he meant.

I played a handful of tourneys over the summer with my 45/45 and Geo. 4 pods and a hopper per game and it's fine, even with crap fills. I just shot 6 full pods of reballs from my Geo on a 3900psi, 45ci tank fill. Down to 500psi after the 6th pod, so I quit. I was indoors, so I couldn't really tell if it was dropping off, but it seemed to be cycling fine.

I play back too, but the format we play are paint limited to hopper and 2 pods per player. So a 45/45 is not a problem.

When we play super7, or the M7 with unlimited paint.... I would use the 68...
