Could be wrong, but I seem to recall you need to keep increasing the LPR pressure through the leak. Just cause it starts to leak doesnt mean its overpressured. Pretty sure when I had this problem a few years ago, Victor at ICD told me over the phone to still turn up the LPR through the leak until it stopped leaking.... Then your in the right spot.

So like the cocker 3-way? If you turn your LPR too low, that will leak.

Thanks a bunch skipdog. That did the trick. Turned it past the leak, then it stopped leaking and the bolt cocked. I'm relieved it was suck a simple fix.

Yes!!!
I love it when its simple, and quite frankly i figured it was. There are lots of helpful people on this forum and all their advise was fantastic....however MCB'ers tend to over analyze and overthink things sometimes...

and i love promasters. they just flat out rock. would put against any 2012 electro any day.

Alright, new issue. I am having pretty bad velocity fluctuations. It will shoot a fwe at 270, then jump to 300, then I'll have one or two more at 260 then I'll get a really low one at like 200. Pressure is at 250psi, lpr set according to the manual, half turn under leaking. My dwell is at 6ms, if I am reading it right. Any thoughts on why it would be so inconsistent?

I'd recommend increasing your dwell to 8ms. That might shore up that velocity fluctuation issue.

Make sure you have a good battery in the marker too.

Also, if you still have the stock HPR on the marker, you might want to consider upgrading to another one at some point. Some of the ICD HPRs weren't too good.

Ok I'll try changing the dwell when I get some more air. And I swapped out the stock reg for my sidewinder as soon as it came in.

My bad on not turning past the leak. I have had to do that enough that i don't even think about it anymore. Stock dwell runs at 8ms. According to my testing on different ram setups, you can achieve velocity down to 5, but velocity variances are crazy that low. 7-8 seems to be the most consistent.
