Regulator pressure difference?

What are the main differences or changes are seen when you have a lower regulator setting (160 psi) compared to a higher regulator setting (200 psi). I see people talk about the best setting is below 170 and others say the best is 200. Just curious what is affected by adjusting this. I am using an output pressure of 550psi on the tank.

160psi is the suggested pressure for aftermarket bolts like the Boss bolt or Lurker bolt.

200psi is the proper pressure for the stock bolt. Stock bolt usually runs best between 180-220psi. Usually anything out of that range you will see velocity inconsistency or the marker will become unreliable with the stock bolt.
