Etek 3 LT consistency problems

Hey guys. Today was my first day out in about 2-3 months and i was having a lot of consistency issues. In the morning it wasn't to bad pretty much + or - 10. But after lunch I aired up and my first shot was 184 then 257,264. So I raise it and then shots 273,307,280,303. It was pretty bad but I didn't notice much on the flield when I was playing. I only lubed the bolt and rammer last night nothing else. I was using a freak barrel with a 689 bore and a 68/4500 ninja tank. You guys have any ideas why this might be happening? I've never had this problem before.

How cold was it out? I was out with my etek4 and I was all over the place as well. It normally is +/- 10 and it was doing what you are describing. The high was 38 or so. Don't know if that may be the issue but as I said I normally do not have the inconsistency I had today.

Increase dwell. PE themselves recommend this.

I've run my dwell at 11-12 ms all winter on my etek4.

Typically that should help.

Well I've tinkered with it a little but I think I put it back into factory settings. I'm not sure it's hard to tell. Ill check that when I get home

I had a similar issue last time i was out, and by the end of the day my LPR was leaking with an audible hiss out of the escape hole. I replaced the o-rings in it and it was totally fine, afterwards. If you have some lying around, that's worth a fix. there's only 2 small ones (though one is in the neck and kind of sucked even with an o-ring pick).

Paint to bore match could be wrong. The change in weather could've changed the ball size and ended up affecting your consistency. What paint were you shooting?

I'd also say the first thing you should check is your battery. After being out 2-3 months that is the problem majority of the time.
