Can anyone come up with an explanation for this?
I dont know your reloading process such as if you neck size only etc.....But something I have found in the past (at least with chambers that are not tight) is that firing new brass or full length size brass versus neck sized only brass shows a velocity difference.
Check your loads side by side over a chrony. You may be suprised what you find.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
