what size tank?.....

Without the size of the tank, we can't give you any information.

However, assuming you have a decent size tank and not a 13/3000, you're gettting horrible consistancy and something is terribly wrong.

I can shoot 4 pods and a hopper full easily and still have plenty of air in my 48/4500 hpa tank. I can shoot more then 350 balls on a 9oz co2 tank with my spyder. If my mini shot that bad I would drive to the mfg. headquarters and throw it through their front window.

If your using a tank bigger than a 48/3000, something is definitly wrong.

Whatever size tank you're using........

On a typical hot fill on my 68/4500 (4000 psi fill) I get well over 900 shots and that is with about 1500 psi left in the tank.

If you can't hear air leaking anywhere about the marker or air bottle,
check the poppet face and what it seats on.

Use Max OC's tuning guide, the dwell may be too high.

Finally, the paintball-barrel bore match may be too large (I've changed from
a .691 barrel to a .687; doesn't sound much, but I've reduced the operating pressure from 160 psi to 145 due to a better match).
