The 10.8v Ni-Mh, when freshly charged, outperforms both my 11.1v 10C 4000mah (40 amp/60? burst) Li-Poly, and a 11.1v 15C 1100mah (measly 16.5 amp continuous) Li-Poly. This is due to how the freshly charged Ni-Mh battery peaks at something around 14 volts, whereas the Li-Poly's stop at 12.6 volts. The Li-Poly's would start to outperform the Ni-Mh down the line at some point after that initial voltage peak starts to drop down to normal.

For the last test (the 38 RPS/320 FPS .25's) I built the gun in it's final configuration and used the 11.1v 1100mah battery which fits in the buffer tube. The Prometheus standard spur and bevel gear were also switched out with a slightly higher ratio (and more robust) RiotSC Balanced spur and bevel gear (20.8 gear ratio versus the standard 18.72).

I've been getting requests to test the Systema Magnum motor in the gun so if I feel daring I might do so.
