I find it very hard to believe that you are doing 4K DPS on a target dummy, and then when you raid you only say you are doing 3K.
This is more than a Conundrum. This is that something is seriously wrong.
Can we get some more details of were you see this DPS drop? Any particular raids? or Dungeons?
For raids, I would suggest putting 2 points into Pursuit of Justice
You are moving slow. You don't have a speed enchant on your boots, to make up for the fact that you don't have the speed enchant in your spec. So keep the boot enchanted with AP and take out the 2 points you have in Unyielding Faith
and put them into POJ.
For Dungeons, if you want to see your DPS sky rocket, then spec 1 point into Seal of Command
and use that for everything but the boss fights.
Last change you need to make is your glyphs, This will give you the biggest DPS increase in a raid by far I'm sure.
You should be using these 3 glyphs.
1.) Glyph of Judgement
it is a nice DPS increase
2.) Glyph of Consecration
THIS IS KEY! not only does this save more mana than any other glyph for ret paladins, but it makes your ret rotation more fluid.
3.) Glyph of Seal of Vengeance
A good choice, 10 expertise is a lot of itemization points that you don't need to worry about on your gear.
Socket all +STR and then put a nightmares tear in a single socket peice of gear that will give you the biggest socket bonus for STR. Your Helm of Thunderous Rampage
would be a great place for the Nightmare Tear. Then just use the same meta your using, and put +STR gems in everything else.
If your DPS doesn't sky rocket with these changes, I will eat my hat!

Don't gem for crit, gem for pure STR other than to fullfill your meta (unless more or less perfect gem bonus, see link below).
For min/maxing purpouses, i would take out 2 points in Vindication and put them in Sheath of Light.
Other than that, do whatever Hat suggested. And read the stickys on ret 3.3!http://www.wowhead.com/?forums&topic=101947

WTB more hit rating...seriously though everything looks good, just make sure you do what hat suggested and with your gear run heroic POS everyday until you get Tyrannical Beheader
. also drop that hit rating and get that expertise up. try and jump into a toc 10 and get the dps trinket in there. it give nearly half your expertise and will give a very good on use buff.
