As pressure gauges where not available at the time it is hard to say. It was generally considered at the time to be more powerful than the equivalent black powder weapons. I can only conclude due to the fact they where much more expensive than black powder weapons. The psi would need to be very high. I will have a better idea one we start to take the thing apart. I would hazard a guess at at least 3000 psi
