How many 5 gallon kegs should I get out of a 10 lb tank. I only got 5 kegs and its out. I just turned the pressure way down a few days ago because my kegs were a little over carbed, would the lack of pressuure at the regulator cause the kegs to leak?

Way more then 5. CO2 leaks are a pain to find. tighten everything down about 2 more times and then see.

I'm at 12 on my 5lbs bottle (serving only, no force carb). You have a leak somewhere. A thick soapy solution (or some of the commercial leak detection stuff) should sort it out quickly enough.
