Correct. You may also be able to increase your dwell .5 ms and drop the pressure a little more. Also make sure you under bore.

Ok so I finally have some plasma money saved up and I wants to get this bolt. Is it worth it? Right now my gun kicks pretty hard now after I got my freak barrel with the .679 bore and ill have a cp one piece that a .685 and already have a .689 so I should be on barrels. When I get it was barrel and what settings should I use. I won't he shooting brittle paint just the cheap stuff. I'll only be useing empire premium I think that's what it is. It has a red and white shell with white fill. Anyway ill be useing that for tournaments. So what do you guys think?

If you are using Premium, it is not "Cheap" paint, it's actually very good. And as for "is the Boss Bolt worth it?" All I can say is the last 3 Pro Tourmament wins have had Boss Bolts in the guns.

Well yeah the premium isn't cheap but the Xo spectrums are. That's what I use for practice. So what would be the all around good settings for the gun, bolt, and barrel?

The Boss bolt and an underbore will make a huge difference. Well worth it. I loaned my axe to a teammate this weekend to use as his Macdev was down. At one point I thought his marker wasn't working and then realized it really was as quiet as everyone told me it was.

Afterwards he told me he was definitely getting one, he loved it.

Been using the infamous bolt since April and it has been great so far!!

One question though. It seems like the last few weeks i've been out, i've had to increase the pressure in-order to get it chronoing up around the 290's. IIRC, my pressure now is somewhere around 160/170.

I *believe* i'm using the short spring, 4ms dwell, and the back cap is 1.5 turns out. I'll double check these settings, but what else could be causing me to have to run the pressure that high or is that still sort of normal for this bolt?

I've also tried keeping all the o-rings as lubed and fresh as possible.

Thanks!

What kind of lube do you use? Do you use a barrel kit? Paint and temps could have a lot to do with it also.

I use Dow33.
I also have a freak barrel kit and I try to match or underbore slightly if possible.

It has been pretty hot lately and I know the paint we have at the field hasn't been the greatest (lots of bounces, really small bore).

Yeah, I think you may have to chalk it up to paint and weather. When the paint and the weather get better I am sure you will see your gun working the way it use to.

Softest shot? Follow the instructions that came with your bolt. Use the longest spring method and start at the recommended settings. Tune from there.

Run the Axe settings. The Axe and Mini use the same solenoid.
