Cold Weather Reg Pressure?
So when we played the day after christmas, we gave our regs about a half-full turn to get the pressure up (it was like 30* F)
What should the ballpark PSI be set at during the colder months?

they shot great after we Upgraded the reg and backed the ivg out.
im just curious if there is a magic pressure for colder weather

I have played in 0*F weather and never touch my reg pressure. If you notice that you are having barrel breaks turn the FPS down.
A credit to CCM, when us Canadians were having trouble with the grease in our regs turning to sludge in reg and slowing down the recharge rate and consistancy, they changed to grease to something that is better in colder temps for all the markers (you know just in case).
I think it came up one time in conversation about maintenance for the markers and we mentioned that the grease used for the reg gels up in the `Canadian`cold so we just cleaned it out and put in a grease that we know works.

And I've noticed that during the summer I have to put grease on the hammer so I can get velocity below 300 fps.

Yea, been having problems as well. Playing indoor in a non-heated (35degree) area with no ventilation, so it's humid (so much so that we get condensation drops falling from the roof).
I have trouble getting consistent velocity above 270. Have not tried cleaning the reg; perhaps the reg is fine, but the lube is not good in cold weather? Anyone have any recommends for good cold weather lube? I'd hate to have to switch to a different reg, but if this turns out to be the problem and we cant get the CCM reg to perform in cold weather, so be it.
Also having trouble with the bolt swelling a tiny bit after a couple hours in this environment. The action gets a bit "thick". I've used other delrin bolts for years and never had this kind of an issue... is the CCM black delrin somehow different than the white delrin that is common in bolts?
