set your victory board to a slower speed. having it set at an excessive speed can cause chops. Make sure the eyes on your marker are working as well.

are you ramping when it's chopping? are the batterys in your marker and hopper fresh?

you mentioned setting the dwell differently. set the dwell back to how it was stock.

your'e using decent paint, but is it fresh or has it been sitting around for a while?

wow 30 ms is stock? hmm I didn't realize that

so it's obviously not a dwell preoblem.

are your detents in good shape? maybe it's a double feeding problem.

just make sure they're still holding the balls in the breach. take off the hopper and try to push a paintball through with your finger. there should be some slight resistance. if not your detents need replaced.

I'm trying to find some more information for you. Ions are a big mystery to me as I'm not a fan of single tube markers.

here is a link to the ion rampage board manual, I'm not sure if it'll help you but it's a start.
