Any help appreciated,
Your initial figures of 757 - 780 are not very good for an Ev2 from what i have seen. Most I would say might expect aroud 10-15 at most variation.

Do the 10 minute test.

fire a shot over the chrono, or several, note the readings. If they are fairy consistant all well and good.

Ten leave the gun 10+ minutes and check the 1st shot again. If its dropped 30+ fps, its the not uncommon Ev2 Reg problem and needs a service.

Have you tried other pellets to see what variation in fps is?

Have to say it sounds like the Reg needs servicing though?
