I've done a search here and elsewhere, and can't find any charts or info.
Anyone know where I can find some hard facts on HPA Regulator recharge rates?
Personally I find it useless to ask for personal opinion. I want to find some test results.
Data comes from ShockerGEEk's post, just wanted to move to the top of the thread and changed up some of the formatting.
A = pressure prior to shot, in PSI
B = lowest pressure during shot, in PSI
C = % pressure drop
D = recovery time 95% of pressure in MS

This info orginally came from Paintball Games International
special edition magazine called "What Paintball Gear? 2003 or 2004 edition". Can't find a copy of it anywhere.
I have ordered the 2005 edition, it is on sale now. Should have it in the next week or so.
Some have questioned how the testing was done; I couldn't tell you, I can't find a copy of the magazine to see how they did it. Hopefully the 2005 edition has info on the testing methods.
