I have a randall half stack and run my amp through an eq pedal in the effects loop and and overdrive pedal before my guitar. Whenever I use my eq pedal though it kills my volume but not when I run it through the input..

Can anybody tell me why this happens?

not sure how that works?

im not exactly sure if i understand the question. your eq pedal is causing a volume drop when used in the fx loop but not when used in front of the amp? is it only when the pedal is turned on?

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

The level in the loop is too hot for the eq pedal. And/or the fx ret impedance is too low for the eq pedal.

This. It's probably running at line level and your pedal isn't built for that. You either need the EbTech level matcher thing or a rack mount EQ.
