300 PSI and IVG help...

Okay so my friend and I both have T2s and we set our reg pressure to 300 and tried to set the FPS with the IVG... only thing is that we cant get below 300 FPS. On both of our markers we backed the IVG out to the bottom tube cap and had to back the regulator screw so it sticks about 1/4" lower than the bottom of the regulator... anyone else having this problem as well? Its not really a problem just something we were talking about so I figured it was worth a post on here... Thanks guys...

Turn it up a little bit more and the velocity will start to come down on the back side of the bell curve. I'm running mine at 280 fps around 330 psi nowadays.

strange how that works, but my 6.5 is the same way, at 300psi the ivg is all the way out, and at 330, its a turn in.

if you want the reg sweet spotted, get a lighter spring for it. Or just increase or decrease you pressure - you can be on either side of the curve. I would think that lowering pressure would be more efficient. Not sure which (higher or lower would be more consistent.

I tried lowering my pressure at first... Ran the gun at 205 psi to shoot 275 for a few months. It was plenty efficient and consistent, and I had no issues until the valve spring started to break in a little and the gun started venting at that pressure. That's when I hiked it up to about 330, and I haven't had any issues since.

Are you sweet-spotting it with the IVG 3 turns in? I think you're suppose to sweet-spot the T2 with the IVG 4 turns in because of the back cap.
