Thanks for the reply!
I'm using a TH3D V6 Hotend (also tried a TH3D Volcano Hotend and got the same results). I feel like I must have built and rebuilt my hotend a billion times to check for tightness of fit.
I am using an all metal hotend, heatbreak etc. Is there anyway to really check to make sure everything is tight? I feel like there has to be some user error on my part..
