What about the fifth or sixth consecutive shot? Do they drop even lower? If you stop shooting for a moment and begin shooting again, is the first couple shots again at full velocity?
Basically, I shoot 2-3 shots and its in the 270 region, sometimes 280, but the 4-5th shot drops, if I stall a second it goes back up. I just got the reg, brand new, yesterday so I am still in the sweet spot process. I should have more time this weekend to mess with it. Not knowing what the reg is set at is my main issue. I have a starting point of 280 psi according to the original owner, but I am awaiting an inline regulator tester for this purpose.
