Trajectory of a Ball

Hello,

I have searched about for this answer with no luck. I am currently looking to resources at large for an answer but have encountered two different images.
using a ball scaled to 1,1,1 with a mass of 10 and force applied form 180-1,000 I was anticipating an arc with identical left and right sides.
By numbers this would express it’s height from the point of origin. (1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2,1), and what I am getting is (1,2,3,4,5,2,0).

Visually:
I am anticipating this

and getting this…Only it seems exaggerated.

reducing the drag to .225 corrects the anticipated flight path to a perfectly flat arc, which seems “off” as well at this point.

I think I fiddled too much and am not sure anymore.
Which one is correct?

btw, here is a video of the paths. The first shot is .225 drag, the second - last are 1.0 drag at variable force.
