First off, I am very glad that you decided to attempt this test, and thank you for inspiring me to begin doing tests of my own!
I am very excted to see that HPA is a much more consistent air source over CO2. This is very apperant in the comparison of your Std Dev vs. my Std Dev of any of the lubes. It can clearly be seen that all of your Std Dev are less than 3, while most of mine aren't even under 5. I will definitely be using HPA for all my tests from now on.
Build tolerances will also play an important factor in how different lubes perform.
The most striking thing that I see is that the WLG has the lowest Std Dev. In my testing the WLG had the worst Std Dev.
I believe that part of the cosistency problems with the greases on my testing were due to the fact that CO2 cools as it expands. With the colder temperatures inside the marker it could have caused the greases to become stiffer. I would be very interested to see how the WLG performs in cold weather with HPA.
I am glad to see that your Velocity measurements read almost the same as mine. The Pure Lube in my testing had the highest fps, and that rings true in yours as well.
For the cost per lube it seems to me that Pure Lube is still one of the best investments. Mainly I like it because it is an all porpose lube so you don't need to worry about having grease for your cyclone and oil for you o-rings/seals. You just need a tube of Pure Lube and you're all set.
It does show that not all lubes are created equal, and they all perform a little bit differently than one another, but I will agree that there isn't a one lube winner.

It's seems that any of these lubes would be fine looking at the perform aspect. The major seperator would probably be price and ease of use.
