Kinetic Energy = 1/2 mass * velocity^2. With the same energy (Joule from gun) and an increase in BB mass simply yields less velocity (FPS). Subsequently, there's the change in grouping and range as well.
Well I don't know it's been debated a couple times here. I still have to see any proof of whether or not this is true! lol.
