Borg chopping?

Alright i'm stumped here. Just tried playing w/ my borg today for the first time and it was nothing but a blender. Eyes were on, paint and battery was fine and i was using my Reloader w/ the six battery pack and max speed setting. Over the chrono i was doing about 260fps and it never chopped while just firing slow and feeding it w/ the rip drive. During the game though once i started ripping it started chopping so i'm thinking maybe a loader issue here. Except when i switched over to my Black Magic and used the same loader i had zero problems chopping and it spat them out like a laser beam. I'm thinking it's something i'm doing since i know it worked for Etfren when i bought it from him.

Check to make sure there is no damage to the bolt fact and your detents aren't screwed in too tight. I would also suggest turning the reloader b down to setting 1 or 2 and trying again. I never went above 2 on my Reloader B.
Also, what paint was it and do you have an lpr tool to check your pressure?

Ok i'll do that and give it a try next time i play which should be in a few weeks. I hope that's what's happening because i really do like this gun. I was kinda thinking it could be loader set to high since it worked fine over the chrono like i said. Thanks Tabris.

Yep, I've had the same issue when using the Reloader B on Angels - on setting 3, I would regularly crack shells, and the ball would then break when hit by the bolt or the air burst. Setting 2, fast enough feeding and no issues.

I can't believe i didn't try my Egg3 on it then. But what i find strange is that i had no problems using setting 3 on the cocker or in the past the Ion and it's still has the stock board. So basically i guess it all depends on what gun you're using it on? I'll bring it down to setting 2 in the morning and maybe see if i have enough air left to try a burst out. Oh and Tabs i was RPS Premium paint, and no i don't have a LPR tool yet.

If the next ball in the stack is cracking when hit by bolt loading the ball that is currently in the breech, a softer bolt impulse may avoid cracking, explaining the difference between markers perhaps.

Thinking along those lines, with a lower setting on the loader, it may reduce the tension enough to allow the next ball to be pushed back in to the loader as the bolt moves forwards to chamber the currently loaded ball - it isn't being forced down hard against the bolt.

I can't say for sure that that is the difference here - just thinking out loud. Choosing a lower setting may do the trick though.
