I'm a little confused, you say the bow was averaging far less damage, but according to wowhead, the bow is 3.0 speed and the rifle is 1.5 speed, which would make the bow slower. So that actually is the reverse of what would be expected. Are you sure something wasn't throwing off your results? Or do you have the damage for the two weapons reversed?
