small caliber joy
Dave I fill with an FX pump 95 % of the time ( or more ).

I fill The BSAs to 250 bar ( John Bowkett's regulators will take 280+ bar ) but the pump peaks out at 250 bar. I fill the Excalibre to 180 bar for best unregulated shot string.
I do have a 300 bar steel tank for when I go to organized shoots ( which are mostly rimfire shoots ) but even then I often only take the pump. I have a dive shop 1 km from home in the city, but a few hundred away when at the farm.
As yet I have had no trouble with any sort of corrosion issues from using the pump. I follow the instructions and bleed it often. Pumping is good rhythmical, large muscle mass, whole body exercise. I weigh 156 lb, 68 inches ht, 73 years on 26th this month.
If in good shape it takes just a few seconds to settle for good bench shooting. ... Kind regards, Harry.
Thanks for taking time to answer that question, it was just purely for my
