Default pellet weights and trajectories

I have (along with a colleague) carried out tests at 55 yards and got the following results.
The 8.2 gr pellets went 22 mm higher than the 8.6 gr pellets with the 8.3 - 8.4 - 8.5 gr weights proportionately between.

Different guns and barrels may give different results, however

The manufacturer states that their pellets give the following results
12mm for a 5 shot group at 50 yards

Does the trajectory alter that much at 50 to 55 yards that the pellet height variation would go from 12 to 22 mm

+ or - 2.5% is 8.19 gr to 8.61 gr so the tests carried out above are within the weight variation
