If the cable is very coiled, it will have non-zero inductance, and hence its resistance to AC will be higher (causing high voltage drops).

0.42 ohm / meter does sound quite high. According to this, even without considering inductance, it will be dropping 0.42 * 52 * 0.29 = 6.33V, which is quite a bit higher than your measured voltage drop.
