Tempo syncing question

ive ran across something a little odd. I lease the beats I use through beatstars, and the producers always have the BPM listed for the tracks. But when I sync the session and tempo they're always a totally different number.
For example the latest one on this producers page has it listed as 130 bpm, my method for finding the tempo was

playing the beat a little before the down beat occurs. once the drums kick in I hit the down arrow and begin my count for 2 bars, once I count I hit the up arrow and it shows my selection. I zoom in on my frame and slide the selection to get it as clean and precise as possible.

I then let it loop playback to make sure that it is a seamless 2 bar loop. I hit identify beat and it shows me the tempo. I get rid of the markers and input my tempo rounding up or down to the nearest whole number, put it in grid mode and check it out.....ill even go to a random 2 bar section towards the end of the song to make sure it is on beat and it is.....But the BPM I get is 71 and theirs was 130. so are a lot of these producers just wrong? what would cause them to get 130 and me to get 71?

Also I have my starting location as 1|1|000 and ending as 3|1|000
