We're dealing with physics here, so the facts really can't be argued, but be aware that you also have to adjust your hop-up properly between weights, or you will loose range.

The first link probably used MatLab or similar to calculate the results, but if you need real world results as well:

You can see that after 65 feet the .25 gram BB is moving faster than the .2 gram BB so it will go further.
