Bear Creek Bullets -anyone noticed odd weights?

I just received 2,000 nominally 205 grain .45 RNFP Bear Creek coated bullets. Now the odd 205, instead of the standard 200 grains, I've attributed to the lack of a lube groove.

What I don't understand is why these supposedly 205 grain bullets weigh 209.5 to 210 grains. I questioned the supplier about this by e-mail, but received no response. Anyone else found their BC bullets to be overweight?
