If you have a half hour, this is a good video to watch. I've been reading up on guys getting no where near Hornady's 3K advertised on the 7PRC ELD-X 175 grain. This guy goes into detail on why, pulls rounds and even contacted Hornady.

 
Try to shoot from the same lots and always get your data when you change and plug it in your calculator.
This is not an uncommon thing. It’s actually quite common across all companies. Some are worse than others.
I’ll add that even in match ammo, lots can have large disparities from one to another…usually a powder thing and most of these companies use mixed powder lots.
I think “hunters” are starting to see this because now more and more people are using “precision” cartridges for hunting and are now using equipment to measure it and they’re seeing that it’s not all the same.
