“Exactly” is hard to define as it was a long time ago. :) Remember that 1080 was MAX speed so, it most likely happened only one time (record setter). I would expect an average to be around 1065 (Max + L4) That’s what I got on 11/11/15 (probably only 3-5 shots then I went to a different setting and did another 3-5, and so on, and so on.) I don’t recall if I took the slack out or not when I went for these numbers. Sorry – again it was a while ago. 
I’ll put this out there but please understand – I don’t recommend it, and am not going to be held responsible if you break your rifle, void warranty, etc… I’ve had my valve return 4 turns beyond the 4th hash. I was never worried about a warranty with mine so, I just dove right in head first. LOL. Basically, I backed it out until I started getting nervous it would fall off or do something that would require sending it in for repair. 
To my knowledge, no modifications were ever performed to my rifle. With that being said, I have noticed that it has always shot just a bit on the hot side.
