We sharpen run‐time analysis for algorithms under the partial rejection sampling framework. Our method yields improved bounds for: the cluster‐popping algorithm for approximating all‐terminal network reliability; the cycle‐popping algorithm for sampling rooted spanning trees; and the sink‐popping algorithm for sampling sink‐free orientations. In all three applications, our bounds are not only tight in order, but also optimal in30 constants.
