ive seen raw feeders calculate raw to be close to twice that high in protein % on a dry matter basis.
Maybe so, but what were they feeding? Dehydrated raw? Typically raw meats will only be ~20-25% protein because of the water content, but if dehydrated the protein content increases just because the water is gone.

Comparison of raw chicken (meat only) versus dehydrated chicken:
