What kind of paint/hopper are you using? What's the temp outside?

Another thing that you could try is increasing the eye delay setting.

I had similar issue. I found out it was my Halo Too hoppers speed setting. It was set on 6 and i was using ultra evil paint. It was crushing balls like crazy. I could only get 4 shots off between each chop. Changed the hopper setting and never had a problem since. Hope you get your problem fixed.

Credit where it's due, it was actually tonycon who first queried your loader (and if he hadn't already mentioned it, I would have done).
