Can you test the reg pressure to see where you are at when shooting 285? This will make the sound a lot louder if running a higher pressure.
Sending the gun in isn't an option. If i can find someone with a reg tester I will do that at some point...
I do appreciate you trying to help but I have a feeling this is going to end with me being dissatisfied with my purchase as this bolt has been a total let down and not lived up to the hype what so ever.
Also, from my other thread about the same issue... Let me know if you have any ideas.

I tried a few different o-rings and the same problem happened every time. by visually inspecting the bolts side by side (and looking inside with a flashlight) the only noticeable difference I can find is that the gold bolt has a different anno and that the bolt switch oring seems to stick out of the grooves on the gold bolt vs. the stock it does not...
Any suggestions before I conclude that the gold bolt was nothing more then a frustrating waste of time and money?
