Realistically, even with a locked breech, given the calibre and size it's not going to be more than that, but it's enough for my purposes
For better power I'm best off developing the hybrid cartridges further, which would also remove the need for an on-board air supply.
edit: a-a-a-a-almost there but the flimsy magazine broke, moar Araldite!
edit 2: here's the shot that wrecked the magazine, fail but I love the spent cartridge flying out dangerously close towards the camera (and actually hitting the tripod...)
I encased the base of the magazine in epoxy in the meantime, more testing tomorrow
