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.

How did you check it for leaking? How much does it weight? It should be stamped somewhere on there saying the "tare" weight which is the cylinder, then add 5# and that is your full weight. Should weight roughly 12lbs *full* if it is an aluminum but all tanks are different some weight 12lbs empty.
