    Does anyone know what the approximate amount of fills I would be able to get from a 3ltr Cylinder? The cylinder is at 232Bar .However, the rifle will be filled to around 170-180 bar.

    I get about 12 - 15 depending on how good the fill was


    Just seen 232 , if I were you I'd avoid a 232 / 3ltr bottle .......... You'll be forever back for refills

    ^ This. 3ltrs are great for filling up in the field but I'd avoid as Chris says you are always refilling.

    Thanks for the nod, Monty, much appreciated.

    Heidi you said your bottle is 232 bar; there are several fill estimators out there and they aren't too bad at 232 bar, but they tend to over-estimate the extra usefulness of 300 bar. If you do happen to think about 300 bar at some time, I do recommend you use my calculator which takes account of factors that others don't.

    What's the volume of what you are filling?
