Is there anything better than stock settings if youre using bone stock parts (I am)? I know the stock settings are okay but I wonder if there's another combination that can help it reach it's full potential. Thanks!
The combination that will get you best consistency is the one you get from using his guide...
There is no one perfect setting that will get you best consistency, every gun is different. That's the purpose of tuning, by doing it you will optimize the performance of your mini. It takes some time, trial and error, but it's needed to find the best settings.
If you are getting bad consistency then try upping your dwell slowly, chrono after each adjustment. Keep raising it until your consistency is acceptable to you. If your dwell is getting too high for your likings (maybe you want a lower dwell for better efficiency), try upping the pressure a bit. It's all about finding the settings that work best for you.
I like a bit of both worlds. My gun could have a lower pressure, but I keep it a little higher so I can lower my dwell more for better efficiency.
