Update to my spring tuning

OK, I found tymcneer and in his signature he has posted "(.665, .670 temporarily unavailable)" so I went back to my first idea; create a back-stop for paint. So yesterday I made this back-stop and shot 50 paintball's and I was surprised at my results. I was using some Polar Ice paint and a .679 insert, I've had this paint for about a month rotating it every other day, stored in my Valken 1000 container with some of those Gel packs that come in Valken Graffiti bags. I did notice the paint isn't as "round" as I would like and my tank is all the way down to about 1300 psi now. I'm putting this project on hold until I get my tank refilled and buy some fresh paint (probably middle of the week). Here are my numbers with the same spring set-up as before:

Min: 259
Max: 286
Range: 27
Average: 273
