220 film on 67II -- 21 shots?

I just shot a lot of 220 film on my Pentax 67II. I was only getting 18 shots per roll. Can anyone tell me why?

I don't have a 67II just the original 6x7 and I haven't shot a lot of 220 film in a while now, but as I recall, threading 220 film is a bit different than 120. Have you noticed a long blank leader? Are your 120 rolls short two? I recall on my camera that I have to tell it that it's a 20 frame roll. Don't know if that's true with a 67II.
