Here's my Condor I got from R&L airguns. 308 caliber and I've put a 68/4500 paintball tank on it with a EtacHPA.
So far I've managed to get 40 shots on low with 52 grain bullet staying between 840fps-860fps-840fps for 20 shots and turning the power wheel up to get a total of 40 shots and saying between 840 and 860fps on a 2700psi fill down to 1800psi.
On high power the 52 grain is making 122fpe for 24 shots and a 124grain is making 183fpe for 19 shots.
I'm still in the process of tuning it and finding the right combination of top hat setting and power wheel setting.
I made the tank cover for the 68/4500 Carbon Fiber paintball tank out of Cordura and neoprene. It was the last piece of material I had left from making a water proof jacket for stalking hogs and gun chaps for for my 223 Bushmaster.
This material is great!! 10x the tear resistance of canvas and half the weight.
It's an Extreme Eagle, #24 out of 250. Just a smooth pulling and smooth shooting bow. I have it at #60 and it feels like #40.
New lever bows are being release by 5150 bows and Gulf Coast Archery. They are going to be sweet!! New cam design, all fast flight string and no steel cables. The timing cable is hidden in the riser. Be sure and take a look at the last picture and the new aluminum limbs.
I'll be upgrading my cams to their new models pretty soon.
I shot one of these years ago out of a tree at a sharp downward angle. Careful, careful! Upon release of the string, that lower limb will snap foreward and hammer your right leg (if you're rt. handed) just above your knee, damn near breaking your leg.
seamstress and sooner or later you are going to cut off your finger tip with those fixed blade broad heads if you shoot with your hand open like that! It's not shrouded thought that was the hole reason for a talon,condom,or what ever it is ? What barrel do they use ? PSMAII
Definitely big gaines in the volume of that 68 ci tank

At those levels and the sheer number of shoots you gain over standard air tubes, man, you should be able to put up some consistent big bore numbers. That's one of the cool thing about the Air Force line of guns, they lend themselves to heavy modifications and that 308 set-up is no exception.
I'll be eagerly awaiting your results also. Have fun shooting.......WOHOOOO!
the big bore air guns are a whole different world.. I am going to have to start used most likely but I am glad that other calibers than the 45 are being worked with more efficiently it seems than in its infancy.. I love all calibers, just felt like a 32 or 30 cal should be a good bullet..
I know the 44 and 45 and 50 are good at slow speeds having all you want in power.. to anchor game.
I am looking forward to seeing what else shakes out ... the air force might be another wonderful platform.. cerainly looks like it to me from here..
r and L ? interesting will try to go there now.
