shooting bullets

alright so i just shot my quest in my backyard and it's shooting bullets. I'm talking 400+ fps. The LPR is at 80 and i use a cp reg and it is turned in very far. what should my dwell be set at?

400fps? I doubt any field will let that slide.

well I know on my reg you have to back the screw out to make the fps go down.... worth a try. Do you have a chrono at your house or u just guessing it shooting that hard.

That would have the opposite effect on a CP reg - it's a gas-through-piston reg design, rather than a pin valve metered reg, so the adjustment is reversed. Turning the adjustment screw out on a CP reg would only increase the output pressure.

DiabloSlayer - did adjusting the screw in reduce the velocity at all? If not, it suggests that your regulator is no longer actually regulating the output pressure. This would most likely be down to dirt or damage to the end of the piston neck, or the seal on the end of the adjustment piston being dirty or damaged.

tag yourself once in the neck at 400+...the ladies will think its hot.

certainly stop shooting. Your bolt cant take that much pressure and it will break.

i do not have a chrono but before i even felt the kick of the gun the ball was well across my yard. yes, turning the screw in did reduce it but it's in as far as it will go without completely cutting off the airflow...and what should my dwell be at?

Dwell at 10, lpr at 80.

The reg you have might be one that can't turn down to opperate that low. It sounds like a reg problem, not a marker problem.

re-check that the reg is assembled correctly and clean/lubed.

Seems odd to base an issue and feedback solely around what someone guesses their gun is doing. I'd run it over a chrono to make sure it's shooting that hot.
