Empire Axe Tuning Help

Hope this is the right place to asked..

Hey guys just started playing PB few months ago I have an Axe LE PDD I screwed up my setting by adjusting the velocity setting. and the reg pressure. How do I bring it back to the OEM Setting or close. Do I screw in the back cap all the way and turn it 1 1/5 turn out and bring my reg back to 200 psi.

Mike on techpb has a video on tuning the empire axe, actually specifically with the le pdd.

Personally I would try re tuning it by screwing the velocity cap all the way in and backing that out until you hit the sweetspot for FPS, then adjust velocity through the regulator

That^

I run my Axe between 160-180psi with a stock bolt and it does great. Just make sure you lube it ;-)

Now when you guys saw sweet spot what exactly does it mean (marker is shooting smooth-consistently?)

Sweet spotting is when you find the plateau on your velocity. If you go over it, you will actually start dropping fps. Once you find the "sweet spot" adjust your reg accordingly and make all velocity changes thru the reg. I have a Boss Infamous Bolt in mine, dwell set to 3, 1.25 turns on the back-cap, running 140 psi thru the reg and get 10-11 pods off a 68/4500. Best upgrade ever.

I just got my Boss V2 spring and Bolt going to install it today and chrono it I'll start with short spring dwell to 3ms screw in the cap and back out 1.5 turn then adjust the velocity thru the reg I don't have to touch the back cap at all?

Never have tuned a mini or axe.

If you really have hit the plateau on velocity, then you can only go down by adjusting the reg either way, yes?

This short process also assumes you are starting in the neighborhood of your target velocity?
