I would say you will need your bottle filling every 2 tins of pellets as working on how many shots you get to a bottle fill does take into account the varying pressures we fill from. And when you get home from shooting put your rifle away as it is with a partially used air fill, refill before you next use it, putting a pcp away filled to max pressure stresses the valves and seals far more.
If you want an accurate number of fills you would have to tell us whether the HW100 is a carbine or rifle and what pressure your dive shop can fill your bottle too. Mine only has around 265 bar when it has cooled after a fill.
Good tip, thanks Tench, in all honesty I never realised that I have always re- filled before storage, I don`t always have room to store the bottle in the car, so didn't want to arrive at range with a near empty rifle.
