I have a Volkl C-10 Pro ( the new one) demo and it's supposed to be
a 4 3/8 but it measures exactly 4 1/2. Is this common with Volkls?
Do they run large by a whole size?

interesting. i took my c10 out today and found that the grip size feels much larger than the 4 1/2 i got. feels like a 5/8. i haven't measured it, but now maybe i will.

I don't know, my Becker Pro feels slightly bigger than my BB10, also the shape seems a little different.

It can be possible to get a miss labeled racquet. If you check the buttcap closely, i think you will be able to see what size butt cap they used. The handle pallets are also labeled if you want to go to the extent of removing the grip

correct me if i'm wrong: shouldn't the grip size be measured without the grip on the pallet? also it's possible that the grip used is thicker than before. slap a thin leather on there and you're good to go!

I really never felt the need to know this, as I never measured. Sometimes the same grip will feel a little different on different days due to humidity and such. Also if a grip feels a bit too large, you can always remove it and rewrap it tighter, etc
