poi changing with full fill questions

Should a full fill to 3000psi change the good old poi?

I was shooting for groups @ 15 yards power wheel @ 2, gave her some air @ 2200psi and the poi dropped a little over 2″. the groups went from nice and tight 2 hollers to a big flappy 5 hole things, the pore wadcuttin copperheads I was running though were bouncing back at me instead of safely imbedding themselves in the tree as they were before the refill.

Is this a normal power curve thing?
could it be a bad valve thing?
or could it be a top hat thing?

any and all input on this one will be greatly appreciated, it’s got me some what baffled as well as pissed for f**kin up my cardboard like that

Thanks for the repair job YN…

this is one of the first times i’ve turned it down like that, I usually hunt with it not plink, I have other toys I use for that plinking stuff, although it was nice to run a bunch through it with a soft report, and would like to do it more often.
the more I think about it, it seems like the valve and fill problem, just not as extreme as some are having.

I’m not sure running the powerwheel at 2 is enough juice for the Condor

Ya, I run her around 10 most of the time, but I was low on air when I started playing so I thought I’d see what would happen if I turned it down, cranked it down to 0.0 and she was doing fine for about 40 shots, rolled it up to 2, got 20 more shots.

Someone put forth the idea that with lower air pressure/low powerwheel setting on the 24″ barrel the pellet wouldn’t make it out of the barrel before the recoil took effect.

I only have a Talon SS so I have to stay between 5-10 to get a consistent group or power level.
