Response to Ok, here's some numbers, this is maxed out,
........especially in .177. Performance is remarkable - hows the cocking effort?
I read your post on the yellow (can't post there yet). Thats cutting edge stuff for sure.
I think what we're looking at is....FT = MV. Since the valve is low volume then time is not your friend. To max out V for any given M, F or transfer pressure becomes critical. It looks like you've hit a near perfect balance between the compromise of flow rate and transfer volume. Also, the heavy's should outperform (fpe) because of two reasons. A slower acceleration due to higher mass will give the FT side a boost by allowing the force to stay higher for a longer time; also, there is always less energy loss with lower velocities. Going forward, I wouldn't know how to improve (efficiency) if you've already eliminated or minimized all transitions (size, shape, direction) in the transfer.
