Manual exposure on D300 Nikon

\015 I prefer manual exposure control with my Nikon d300.After setting fston and shutter speed as I wish, the shot is fine. However, the manual setting changes (f-stop in particular) to something completely different after taking shot and I have to enter it again. Not bracketing problem as this is off. I'd like to just be able to set up camera and go. Camera problem or user problem? Thanks\015
