Yes are going to try and test at least 5, but we have to see how machining the Pryrex goes

We are using a metal mechbox

No. Air is air, we are only looking at barrel and what happens in the barrel. having said that, we do intend to use different springs and nozzles to see what effects they have on the BB.

If you guys nail down some good results, you could build a custom Bastard labs gun (Systema please!). Lol, just kidding.
We are building a dedicated test rig. As I mentioned above, we are only looking for BB behavior in the barrel, so from the nozzle out we will be trying different things. We will only be using one mechbox and gearset at this time to keep things as predicable as possible.

Also, how close are you guys to developing a 0.30g and 0.36g bio round?[/QUOTE]

Close. we are talking to our new manufacturers currently and getting test run sample in. It takes time to do the tweaking.
