Air leak

So was trying to chrono down to 275 and I would do a turn and test fire only for it sit at 290. So I kept turning and turning and then air started leaking at a fast rate out of the bottom of the regulator. I screwed it back in and air started venting out of the relief valve/top of the regulator. Then I removed the tank screwed the regulator back in almost all the way and reattached the tank. Now the air is venting from underneath the trigger. As well, the gun chrono to 275 and shot perfectly. It constantly loses air and it won't even last a single game. Any thoughts or ideas? Everything is stock except for the barrel.

Um, you turned the screw on the reg the wrong way...

When you turn the pressure up too high, the gun has a built in overpressure relief, which would explain your leak.

Time to re-build/lube your reg. Also, you may want to inspect the hoses and the solenoid housing for cracks. If you over pressurized your solenoid, you may have cracked the housing. They're pretty cheap though.
