Umair, I don't think you will find your answer here, as most of us have no way of knowing the variation in our regulators. The rifles that have reg gauges are not sufficiently accurate for this purpose. I believe the only practical approach for most of us is to work with a chrono as we tune. If accuracy is poor, and velocity is erratic, the reg could be the issue, or one of several. I've had rifles with velocity ES at a level I thought poor, but shot very well. It will for sure affect accuracy, beginning at a given distance. The question then, is your shooting distance within the the capability of your rifle, part of which is the reg? For example, I improved the accuracy of a rifle by changing regs, and velocity ES was much smaller. But, I have no idea of the pressure consistency in either regulator.
