mini reg and velocity issues

Ok, so I have a new mini (about 2 months) and never had any issues until now. I have the reg set to 200 psi and when i shoot slow there is no issues. Once I get on it and shoot fast, the balls velocity drops dramatically to the point where balls go about 10 feet. I never touched the velocity adjustment from the week prior (I played in tournamnet games and was shooting 285, 280, 279). At first I thought it was maybe because my tank was getting low on air (Compressed Air) and I put a full tank on. Same issue.
Any suggestions?

Make sure your tank is screwed in all the way

If it is, than you're choking up somewhere
May want to send it back to KEE under warranty

Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.

Im pretty sure the tank was screwed in all the way. Also, I forgot to add that when I shoot the, regular gauge goes from 200 to like 50 when I shoot slow and back to 200. When i shoot fast, it goes from 200 and then lower and lower each time like it's not recharging itself or something. I plan on testing it out more today in the back yard and see if I can pin point the problem.

It could be your tank regulator than

ok, so I tested the gun again this afternoon and surprisingly enough, the issue that i thought i had, is gone. I made sure that the tank was screwed in all the way and the reg was set at a little above 200. I put a hopper through as fast as i could and saw no variations in ball velocity. It could have been that the tank wasn't screwed in all the way. I test it again later in the week to make sure.
