I'd bet if you run your recipe through Brewers Friend or something similar you will get the answer to your question. This would explain why it took less water to get to your expected OG.

I bought another hydrometer and checked them both. They are both right.

I plugged your recipe into BeerSmith and the OG is 1.046 on a 5 gal batch, I think the instructions are off just a bit.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
