I believe there might be some missunderstanding regarding the term "maxed out hammer spring". As far as I know most use the term on most guns when they adjust hammer spring at a given reg pressure until there is no more velocity to gain. That is usually the max setting for that given pressure. But regarding the impact and crown, some refers to the maximum possible tension on the spring achiveable mechanically by adjusting the screw on the wheel all the way until it almost have no slack. If you max it out mechanically, you probably has to start measure pellet speeds at lower settings like starting on setting 1 or 2, and then measure one click up at a time. Lets say you end up with setting 4, and 5 have equal speed, you are probably maxed out already at setting 4, or somewhere between 3 and 4. So to find your "max" in regards to the reg pressure you have to measure the lower settings first, to know where you are in the adjustement range.
