Another reason could be that you mistake KTAS (Knots True AirSpeed) with KIAS (Knots Indicated AirSpeed). The tables and many publications gives the speeds in KTAS. So you have to read the KTAS-values from your instruments, not the KIAS. How to?- just read below.

The Air Speed Indicator has a dial at the upper part of the instrument face. So you simply dial in the pressure altitude in ft via the knob, and align it with the temperature mark just below.

Now you can read your true airspeed in the lower left window of your instrument.
