I did wonder if this standard figure is what Skan chronos use to calculate muzzle energy and was going to test it, although the readout doesn't have enough decimal places to quantify the 0.04% difference in the results
Think it's less than that, but 5 fps at 800 is 0.006%, so accuracy is important, especially as a lot of chronos round, and we round ft-lb.
