Our 8g CO2 cartridges are custom fit for the Byrna HD. Each cartridge (new) will be good for 15-20 rounds (4 mags in a 5 round magazine) at full speed. Punctured cartridges within the Byrna will leak over time.
It is recommended to swap out punctured CO2 cartridges and leave an un-punctured cartridge inside the Byrna HD to avoid any compressed air loss. The Byrna HD will puncture and fire the first round at the same time.
Know all your state laws before purchase is made.
