BW bolt tuning on DM12

What's going on guys,
I've been searching and searching for the proper steps to tune my DM12 with the BW bolt.
Does anyone have any tips on tuning and adjusting the dwell to make it perform at its best?

Any help is appreciated

Thanks
Richard

I will agree with grss429. I tuned my DM12 to those specs given on DYEpaintball.com Dwell 21 and LPR to 3 1/4 turns. When I went to Chrono i was shooting 300 consistently. I turned it down to 280 +/- 5fps had no problems the whole day shooting. Hope it helps.

To actually "tune" it here's the steps you take:

1. Turn the LPR in until it's snug.

2. Raise your dwell to 21.

3. Go to a chrono with a hopper of paint and your 3/16th allen.

4. Leave your hopper off, air up your gun and raise your LPR until your bolt is sucked back.

5. Put your hopper on and start shooting over the chrono and raise your LPR slowly while shooting until your FPS groupings are consistent.

6. Now raise your LPR 1/4 turn to keep it consistent even when the weather fluctuates a little.

This will give you the best results as your LPR will now be setup for YOUR gun, not some flat setting but a custom setup. It sounds hard but it should only take 15-20 minutes tops.
