Dual 425's do the same amount of damage over time because of a higher ROF even though they do less damage per hit. But they are shorter ranged and use a buttload of ammo.

since its not so hard to fit 800's on a tempest and the extra range could probably be nice if you and someone else web each other at 10km, Id say go for the 800s.

Dual 425'are Decent, but due to the insane number of times you reload i think it has less DOT once you have been fighting a bit.

Pkus even filling the tempest with ammo will only last those guns and hour or two Rolling Eyes

Best shortrange projectiles are dual650 ... they do about the same DOT as the dual425 with a slightly higher range. 800s are worse than any of those 2 plus they are more expensive (expecially if you are using named ones which is strongly recommended anyway).

Concerning reloading: with dual425 you have to reload least because the higher capacity more than compensates the higher ROF.
