I got my hands on a Falcon 363mm 6.03 TBB.  Finally.  I got it from ASGI if anyones wondering.  If you want it, get the restock notification.  It sells out almost immediately.

When I first put it in and shot the gun, It was shooting in the 480-520 range, averaging about 495-500.  That was around 5-6 weeks ago.  But the other day, I shot it again, and it's lingering in the 440-470 range.  I tried different mags, I tried emptying a mag completely of gas and re-gassing it, no increase back up to around 500.

I also noticed my barrel extension wobbling.  Not a lot, but enough that I noticed it just picking the gun up.  At first I thought it was the extension itself, but it's actually the whole outer barrel moving.  I electrical taped around my inner barrel in two spots inside the extension so that it's supported somewhat.  Should I the tape that off? (Does it really need to be supported? I was told on here that it should be. Would it really bend or something...?)  Is the wobble causing the FPS drop? Should I be take the barrel extension off when I'm not in the field so there is less weight on the outer barrel?

Maybe this is a question for FALCON?

Maybe, but any idea why the outer barrel is moving?
