Chrono data for my Silver Streak Sheridan.
(All Sheridans are .20 cal/5mm)
The manual for my Sheridan lists 8 pumps as max, btw.
Sheridan "Ash can style" pellets
6 pumps -- 540fps
8 pumps -- 582fps
Beeman Silver Jet pellets
6 pumps -- 610fps
Beeman Silver Bear pellets (very light pellets)
6 pumps -- 630fps
8 pumps -- 675fps
These guns are LOUD. Pumped 8 times, this gun sounds about twice as loud as my .20 caliber R1 that will shoot well over 800fps with light pellets.

At the Crossman web site it lists Sheirdans that are .177, .20 ,.22
cal. My Sheridan is about 28 years old. I believe the manual says max of 10 pumps for mine. I will double check when I get time.

The .177 & .22 guns are actually Benjamins.
Benjamin & Sheridan were separate companies that merged. They kept their lines separate, although the guns were similar (and got more similar over the years). They sell the 5mm (.20 cal) guns as Sheridans and the .177 & .22 guns as Benjamins.
Crosman bought the merged company sometime back.
