The scope has a Bisley Maximiser on it so I would have thought this reduces the amount of variance of eye position.
I'm not saying this is Schrodinger's Cat or the Double Slit Experiment but it's a bid weird.
It's not so much a case of who's looking through the scope and pulling the trigger - it's more a case of who and how are they holding the rifle and interacting with the recoil.
It's not uncommon to hear stories among seasoned springer shooters about how their gun shoots x inches low / high / left / right etc when they take a standing shot as opposed to a sitting shot.
Same gun, same fixed scope, same person pulling the trigger - Different Hold
I guess to a far lesser degree the same is also true of PCP's but the difference is so slight you probably wouldn't notice it.
