Default portable keg co2

I am going on a camping trip this weekend and am going to be using the portable co2 set up using 16g co2 cartridges. Has any one used these if so how many to push the full 5 gal also can I use the ones sold a walmart for bb guns or do I have to spend the extra $ on the ones at the beer store $2.50 each? Any tips would be great. Thanks

I'd probably get the ones intended for beer, you never know what might be in the paintball ones (I'm thinking mostly oils of some sort).

My friend brought over one of his kegs and a CO2 charger for a party and it took 2 plus part of a third to dispense the keg.
