I have the same DAQ, but I've yet to chrony it.  I have one day under my belt at the range, and I'm going to say that it is a beast. Kicks like a mule, and roars. Sounds like a powder burner.  I shot it with my 909s and I know for sure the DAQ makes the 909s pale in power. When I get to shoot it again I'll chrony it and report back.

Oh, it sucks the air out of a big tank mighty fast.  2 shots, refill. Of course it really isn't broken in, so I suspect that after breaking in, you might be able to get three useable shots. Maybe. My first dozen or two shots I'd get two shots, and the DAQ was empty.  :o

Yep, dumps the reservoir on second shot. BOOOOOOOM!

Funny with my earmuffs on it still sounds like BOOOOOOOM!, but the 909s, and the DAQ .58 Pistol have a hollow whoop sound. Serious business this .58 Short Rifle is.

I cast a bunch of .575 round balls when I first got the rifle, and also have a .575 minie mold I need to try out. I just need to get away and go shoot the thing.

What psi are you filling to?  I fill my DAQ .457LA  to 3250psi.  Some fill to 3500 but I don't.

I believe I filled to 3k as specified by Dennis. The last time I was at the range, I ran out of air in the big tank and a smaller tank. So I was trying to conserve air. (if that's possible with a DAQ).

Yeah I understand saving air for a few more fills. Big bore airguns don't get a lot fuel mileage. I'm anticipating a 3250psi fill based on your comments. Hopefully that will give 2 shots without dumping before the fill .   Filling from empty takes more air than adding 250psi to the max fill.
