PM8 efficiency

So I was just watching some ****** reviews on the PM8 and Ego 11 where they do the efficiency tests and the two guns shot almost the exact same amount of paint before running out of air (around 9.5 pods). Now that is interesting enough as it is, but what made it even more interesting was the fact that the PM8 was filled to around 3800 psi and the ego was around 4500 psi. I find it hard to believe that the PM8 is more efficient than the Ego 11, but the evidence is there... What are the numbers you guys are getting with your stock PM8s?

Video of said test? It's not an accurate test if the tanks don't even contain the same amount of pressure.

Did they chrono them before doing an efficiency test? This is one easy way to fake an efficiency test. It takes much less air to chrono at like 200 than say 280, and you won't be able to tell looking at it leave the barrel that it's a different velocity (too lazy to click the link to look myself).

PM8 can be tuned to be very efficient in exchange for a more violent shot. And an Ego can be tuned to have poor efficiency.

Also you could run the Ego with a .693 bore with small paint and have garbage efficiency while the PM8 uses a smaller bore that fits the paint better.

Don't believe everything you see on the internet.

agree 100%, I like Proto/Dye but they can never be as efficient as an Ego, it's the design.

Wouldn't the rain in in the PM8 vid cause the paint to swell? It could have acted as an underbore giving an efficiency increase. Dunno.
