It's also interesting (and seemingly improbable) that the downrange velocity consistency could be better than at the muzzle... statistical anomaly?
How about this theory - drag increases exponentially with velocity. So could it be possible that a pellet leaving the muzzle at 790 fps could arrive at 55 yards at the same velocity as a pellet that left the barrel at 780 fps? (dunno )

Or it could be that my chrono isn't accurate enough - who knows. Them's the figures I got, pick the bones out of em
