Hmm, maybe time to clean the thead?...

Repair FAQ: Goofy Velocity Issue
Just incase anyone else ever has this happen. I tried a sanding job on my stock bolt because I swelled it (I know, stupid me.. and check the Lubrication thread, I'm adding a new post there about proper lubing soon)...

...anyway, I was getting HORRIBLE blowback, and I think it was from air getting through deep sanding grooves in my bolt that I didn't get out. Anyway, I replaced the bolt, the blowback stopped (Used a Vapor Bolt, thanks again Yoda), and the velocity fixed itself very nicely.

Hope no-one else runs into this type of problem
