that's the whole idea of a regulator in a rifle. They are designed to shoot the same over the entire fill. My Webley LiteW8 which was fitted by Phil Crampton of the Rat Works is good right the way through the shot count. All I need to do is get my range to the target and work out my hold over or under at that range.
A 190 BAR fill will give me 70 shots, while a 200 BAR fill gives about 105 shots per charge.
I get around 70 shots from a 170 Bar fill. I stopped testing at 90-Bar one day - but the gun was still spot on. So this is not really an argument for a reg.
Unless you've tried it, you'll never know the difference,....
My point is, there is no real difference other than a few shots more. I've never shot 70 rabbits in one go. Have you ever compared an AAS400 / S410 - fettled (internal polish, lube, shimmed, springs checked etc) against a regged one? The regged one will have a few more shots, but absolutely nothing else on top of that relative to a properly fettled one. This is not the case for other guns of course (some BSAs need regs due to a woeful shot count so I'm told).
As long as you are happy with it mate - that's the main thing.
