With a 98C... about 500, more or less depending on paint to bore size match, upgrades, temperature...

Be efficient- go nitro.

get a 20oz- its heavy but its worth it... you wont run out of gas in the middle of a game and have that annoying sputtering sound tell the rest of the field that your out of gas and an easy target...

9 oz. about 500, 20 oz. about 1200.

Heck no. Tippmann advertises a 9oz tank at 250 shots. If you got 400 out of a 9oz I would be supprised.

And with a 20 oz, don't expect more than 800-1000.

An A-5 with a R/T doesnt get very good gas mileage at all for 3 reasons:

1: With an R/T, you shoot a lot without realizing it (but its fun)

2: A-5s use a lot of air. I played a 15min game with my friends A-5 and a full 9oz. and only shot about 200 times before I ran out.

3: R/Ts use a lot of extra air to reset the trigger. Get a 20 oz and a remote line, or get a lot of tanks (or go nitro)
