How many PSI should a full 5# CO2 bottle read?

Not sure what's up...I have a loaner 5# CO2 bottle and I just had it filled a couple weeks ago. When I attach the reg. it shows around 1000psi. The tank lasts less then a month. I checked for leaking but didn't see anything.

I use the paper washer that comes on a tank refill but you need 2 wrenches and you have to really crank on it and you'll be fine but if you use a single wrench you are likely to get a leak after a week or so and if it goes unnoticed the tank will be empty in couple of days.
