FYI Proteges are pretty much just like Vices just without the fancy milling and such.

Below is what Mike told me

 
 Backing off how hard you hit the poppet (reducing LPR pressure, reducing dwell) can have a pretty negative effect on how your gun performs

If you have to increase HPR pressure to increase velocity (with a "tuned LPR"), this can have a "submarine door" effect on the poppet, and your reduced dwell and LPR pressure can actually cause your velocity to go down. 

If you smack the poppet hard, it opens up all the way, allowing your to run a lower HPR which is what actually propels the ball out of the barrel.

I tend to just run my dwell @ 8ms, LPR @ 80psi, and I've found this allows me to reduce my HPR pressure to get to 300fps. 

Leave your dwell @ 8ms. Set your gun to 80psi and your HPR to 300fps. Then start backing out your LPR slowly until your velocity starts to drop. Once it starts to drop, tighten it 1/4 turn. That should put your ram at it's optimum pressure so it's not over-smacking the poppet, causing vibration through the gun. 

Idealy, you shouldn't be using your LPR to adjust velocity. If you are, you need to increase your LPR pressure. 

But I've found from shooting Bob Long's for years, that they really tend to like 80psi. Once you start going below that, all hell breaks loose with inconsistency over the chrono. I played the entire 2009 PSP using the Vice, and I kept it at 80psi the entire season. Every time I walked up the chrono, regardless of what city I was in, it shot consistent. Whenever my consistency started to get a bit flaky, low LPR was always to blame. 

Hope this helps!


Awesome!! Thank you so much! That will probably help my velocity cause it was shooting low at first. And I really had to play with the hpr! Ill leave dwell alone and turn the lpr to 80 and update ya guys then! But thank you sir! Exactly what I was looking for advice like that!

Ok first I typed this FAST! Look at my previous threads and or post. My English and typing skills are quite fine! Secondly, the detents do look worn, would not hurt to replace them! Thirdly I do have a pressure tester, hence why I know the pressure is at 70. Next I asked about the dwell, which is at 8. I have seen/heard of it being different! Then I asked about it being more consistent. What can I do? Also just a side note, I did check google and do a search for vice detents. That link came up. But as I stated "what kind of detents go in this" so I clearly was not sure, hence why I asked! So I did a search no need to be such a dick! And I just want to know, once a gun is as broken in as this, and it is a bob long I know people tune them. So I am asking, what do you recommend doing if I insist on trying to tune it. What does what? Turning it up and down etc. and a different lpr setting even perhaps? Was just looking for advice.
