Lower dwells are generally more inconsistent and higher dwells smoother while lower dwells are more efficient and higher less efficient. its usually best to leave the dwell at the stock 6.0 unless you know what you are doing.
If you are having the same problem i was, you need to sweet spot your reg, just like gamer has said multiple times. mine was doing the exact same thing and i fixed the inconsistent velocity by getting the hpr perfect, and by perfect, i mean exactly perfect. when i did it, 1/32 of a turn seemed to matter so get some time over a chrono with plenty of paint and set it up right, it really makes a huge difference.
To Sweet Spot the marker:
1. turn the lpr until it fully cycles
2. raise/lower the hpr until you have the highest possible velocity with that lpr setting (also known as the sweet spot, find by shooting at least 5 shots over chrono per turn of hpr until it is right and the velocity stops rising, there is a point where increasing/decreasing velocity both decrease velocity and that is the sweet spot)
3. change lpr to desired velocity
4. raise/lower hpr to find the new sweetspot, should be close already
5. repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have the desired velocity range and fairly consistent shots
after it is sweet spotted, use a pressure tester to find out which pressures you just set the lpr and hpr to and write them down. all g6rs come with a card that has the recommended pressures, usually for around 290 fps, but if you do not know where your card is, do this.
The other way of fixing inconsistencies is to lube the lpr, hpr, poppit, ram, and/or bolt. i mention these last because i assume this is not your problem. good luck! (if you didn't read the manual, lpr, hpr, poppit, and ram are supposed to use dow 55 and the bolt uses gun oil)
