I have been making a determined effort to get the reputation cap daily and thus far have achieved the 200 cap 3 days in a row. I have just looked at my reputation today (day 4) and see it's been capped out at 175 - I noticed this as I got 2x upvotes which gave me 11 rep. Is there any reason for this behaviour?

You're actually already at 200 for today - according to Mr. Skeet's Reputation Tracker.

Thats odd then, my stack profile states 175. Is it to do with timing then perhaps? – Kyle Rozendo Mar 4 '10 at 10:24
It could be a timing issue - maybe depends when those downvotes come in. How the rep cap behaves wrt downvotes and accepts has always mystified me. – Dominic Rodger Mar 4 '10 at 10:31
@Kyle did you click the "today" tab? The default view doesn't display that day's details ("day" in terms of midnight - midnight UTC). – Pëkka Mar 4 '10 at 10:59
@Pekka, yea I did, still says 175. – Kyle Rozendo Mar 4 '10 at 11:02
@Kyle: My rep tracker and the profile tab should agree; have a look at where they disagree in the details, if they're disagreeing about the total. – Jon Skeet Mar 4 '10 at 12:41
Seems to have updated now. Its now sitting at 200. Thanks all. – Kyle Rozendo Mar 4 '10 at 14:38

Did someone unaccept an answer of yours? That'd be -15.

Not that I've seen. I don't think I deleted any upvoted answers either. I do see however that someone un-upvoted one of my answers taking away yesterdays daily cap. That made me a tad sad :P – Kyle Rozendo Mar 4 '10 at 10:32
Once you hit the cap, if you dip back under it for an unaccept, you're still considered capped? – D_N Mar 4 '10 at 10:51
@DN, yes, you are capped for the rest of the day, even if you lose 200 rep – juanformoso Mar 4 '10 at 12:55
@kyle, you don't see if someone unaccepts, or un-votes you, it's like it never happened! – juanformoso Mar 4 '10 at 12:55
