Hi Steve, I dropped another comment on Instagram and can you verify your Hades tune? At 100 bar reg I’m not sure how you are achieving those speeds. I can get there at 125 -130 Bar on the reg but not 100. Can you verify?
Steve, well done and very through but you need to add 1 thing in my opinion and that is the measurement of the fine adj screw for your 0 setting so others could follow your exact tune. I would say that with this anyone could now do a pretty good job of setting up their mav.
Thank you for the advice and I got the same results as you did. FX has to really appreciate the knowledge and effort you put into this vlog as I’m sure it will help many customers.
Another question does the Sekhmet provide shot to shot bar consumption. Wonder if running a lower reg and higher hammer load consumes as much air per shot as a higher reg with a lighter hammer load. Maybe negligible but just a thought.
Again appreciate your input and Kens involvement in this vlog!
When you changed the barrel from sniper to compact you say to put the slug transfer port in the bottom. I tried it today and my speed went up 25fps. I don't have the time to fully test it but dies it improve/decrease things like shotcount and grouping? (I will test it myself if you don't know but you made me lazy with that excellent video)
Also no vp/600mm barrel testing? At the moment i compare your sniper and compact tunes and i will try to get it somewhere in between.
Now i got it shooting 34gr at 895fps using 120bar but seeing what others get for accuracy make me think i'm doing something wrong (2-3" group at 90m/98y)
If a person knew the thickness of the head of the Allen screw and the pitch of the threads couldn’t he set the length by just calculating the turns out and save the disassembly?
My Maverick which should arrive tomorrow is a 30 caliber Compact. For now I will initially be using some 48.6 gr pellets that I have just to get started but this gun will be used as a hunting gun for coyotes and hogs. I will be using Nielsen slugs when they come available probably around 50 gr. I do have a sample pack of their slugs on the way that I can test to determine what weight I will settle on. I am more interested in accuracy than power because as a hunter believe that shot placement is the most important factor.
Do you have a recommended starting point for regulator settings for my application?
