Building problems
Hey I know this might sound silly. This isn't my first time building but it has been awhile. I've been trying to build just a decent .2 coil for my rda. Every single time I've built a dual coil build on 26 gauge and 22 gauge kanthol they come out at .4-.5 ohms. It's only 6-7 wraps each time because that is the only thing that will fit on my rda. I need it at .2 ohms and I'm really struggling with trying to make these builds work. Honesty 6 wraps on 26 gauge wire should be .2 ohms but it just isn't working out. Anyone know of a good build to but on a 4 post rda. It has the two holes in the center and two on the edge. It's the bullet rda by tobecco.

RE: Building problems
24g kanthal , 5 wraps on a 2mm rod should get you close to a .2 dual coil . twisted 26 will be similar

When life hands you lemmons , make lemmon aid . When life hands you coconuts , stuff them in your shirt and ask if they make your boobs look big .

RE: Building problems
What he said Tongue 5 24g wraps 2.5mm

I'll go on to say 3 wraps of 26g dual around a 2.5mm is .2, the coil is too small for a consistent vape. While at .2 I find 2.2-3mm internal to be best. If you want 6 wraps to be .2 it'll be around 1mm internal.. don't go there.

RE: Building problems
The Hollowpoint RDA? That one has a pretty big build deck, I would think it could hold bigger coils than that. 
I'm surprised you're getting that high resistance with 22ga, normally when I use 22ga my problem is too low resistance. Could be something wrong with your mod that it thinks everything is 0.4 ohms? Especially if the 26ga coils and the 22ga coils are reading the same, they should be very different.

RE: Building problems
I echo with Michael's reply, have you tried the build on a different mod or on an ohm reader? Was the read after the coil was at room temperature or right after it was fired up a couple of time as the resistance will vary depending on temp.

I use a mech mod. But when I put it on the ohm reader it reads about the same as when I put it on a RX 200 and I've had no problems with bad reading on that. I can't seem to find the problem. I have a friend that has 10 raps of 26 gauge and his reads at .3 so I'm confused on how mine isn't reading properly.
