FPS jumps up and down

i was playing last weekend and i noticed my droid was shooting a bit erratically. it would jump from the 280's to 90's and back and forth by about 10-15 fps. anyone know the cause of this? i just got my militia lube in the mail yesterday, but had to use some dow33 i had before playing last sunday. will the lube create that problem or is it something else? thanks

It is possible the lube could be to blame.
Paint
Boar match
Weather

If all your orings are in good shape and are sealing correctly the 33 is most likely to blame due to it being really thick.

I would say that Dow 33 is a standard in the industry and works great for most applications involving grease. I have always used it and never had a problem with it. All the other lubes listed are great too, especially the new militia lube.

It's no so much that there's a problem with it as much as that it's not a slick as some of the newer lubes. With DMs switching from dow to hater (or any slicker lube) was good for 10psi on the LPR. On the clone since there is no LPR, that 10psi is more significant.
