Murometz Power to Weapon only increases the damage of primary weapon by 20% (5500 to 6600) compared to other arty ships (Even Vucari) which enjoy about 40% or 50% damage increase during PtW. Is this intentional? Why is this one's PtW the only one underwhelming?
It's hardly the only one, T2 and T3 medium arties with the highest PtW shot damage of all ships in game are just the most easily noticeable. T5 medium arty has lower PtW shot damage than the T1 version even, btw. But there are plenty weapons with dubious scaling across all tiers and ship classes.
It took quite some effort to get the responsible dev to even acknowledge that fact a year ago or so but other than "I'll have to look into that" nothing has happened since.
I cannot at this point say whether it's still a bug or has been declared a feature. Note however that bigger energy pools at higher tiers generally allow you to get off more powered shots, so even if your powered per-shot damaged is lower, you can overall put out more (theoretical) damage. I do hope that's not the reasoning though, because it's not a good one, since opponents scale as well and arties are not about sustained damage. Also it is not consistent - JA arties have the highest powered per-shot damage in T5, as you would expect.
