Default Another calories not adding up!

I have been searching here and trying to understand why my calories do not total my macros. I have had FitDay PC for a long time and never really added it up. Well, I've been doing that and it can be off up 70 cals. I use a mixture of custom foods and database foods although mostly custom. Do I need to use a "serving" vs a unit such as grams or oz?

For instance:
Beef, ground 90% cooked: 3oz=180cals, 9gr fat, 0gr carbs, 24gr protein. Caloris from the macros are 177 not 180. I have that in my custom foods by the oz, using 3 as the serving (3/1oz servings).

Any help or understanding of this would be appreciated!
