Thank you for your support Far Cry. :)

It's my video that was linked to. I did post about it in the ITWOST thread.

I like the sound too. :D

I know it's harder to find if you're not here all the time, but when this is working like it's supposed to, believe me,... I'll shout it from the roof tops, until you all tell me to "shut up already!":wink:

That is some serious power. At only 600PSI I'd hate to see the damage at 3000PSI.

How are you getting this pressure into it. Is it your home made pump or are you using a scuba tank or something?

I believe he purchased an industrial nitrogen bottle. What he was using for 600 psi, not sure.

Sound is awesome, 3000 must be beast

Is it morning in Aus already? :D Thanks guys.

Leased actually. Costs me $70 a year just to have the bottle, contents are extra of course. :(

I'm using the nitrogen, it's a heck of a lot easier than pumping. :) (understatement)

3000psi is going to be a bit loud I think. :D

Clucking bell, great stuff :D and at "only" 600 psi

Also, lol at your other half's scope trouble, always happens when you take girls shooting, they never seem to get the right eye relief :)

The steel used to make the tank was ~1.5mm thick, but rusting to varying degrees. I used my foster slugs cast from wheel weights.
