Default At what point does pressure drop on an EV2 MK3

I have a EV2 MK3, I'm shooting with JSB's 452's and I fill to 190bar, i've never shot it until the pressure starts to drop or until the pellets start dropping, and I just wondered if anyone has done the procedure to see how many shots they'll get from one fill of 190bar.

How many shots though before it starts to drop, I'm probably being lazy and need to get out on the range, fill the EV to its regular 190bar, and shoot some pellets off until it starts to drop.

It's roughly 1 bar per shot.

I fill mine to about 180 bar and only shoot down to about 110 bar, so I get 70 or so really consistent shots, plenty enough for a 50 shot GP course.

(Obviously if you fill to 190 and shoot down to 100 bar you will get about 90 ish, but its not good to go below 100 bar as the shots will go low and the regulator will soon dump air if you continue shooting).
