You do not mention the units of the specific heat that you found. Perhaps your inability to find a match has to do with your use of unconventional units. I trust that you have checked your calculations and assumptions more than once.

What's the experimental error on that value? If you're looking for a perfect match, you won't find one because the error in these types of experiments can be quite large.
