    You really only have one there that is a little off from the pack, the one that is 2868. Sometimes those will show up, for no explainable reason. It can be the brass is " tired" the barrel is hot, cold, or something you may never figure out. How did the load shoot on paper? Best thing to do is shoot it some more, and compare. If the load is grouping well, and you are not shooting super long distance, don't worry about it. That is actually pretty good speed.

    P/ S, consistentcy is KEY.

    That is not bad, but speed could come up a little, or leave it alone. Are you shooting a five shots at once, or are you waiting after two shots? Just curious.
