u would need 8 gal worth of 80psi air.
a 20oz co2 pb tank won't do the trick, a big chamber is a good idea.

Darkpyro:
There is a airsupply-on-board BBMG on this site; mr.Plow's "Vortex project". He has a chamber some 25% smaller than your 50x8cm chamber would be.

He says he gets roughly 100 shots per charge, which at typical rates of fire corresponds to roughly 1.5 seconds of firing.

No, if you held it for 3 milliseconds it'd fire 1/5 a bb - but that's not a valid excecize because:
A: you can't press the trigger for 3 milliseconds.
B: the chamber takes longer than that to pressurize

15bbs would be about 1/4 second.
