To the OP, when you are both shooting, is your primary zero in the same place for both of you on the turret?
i.e. if the 0 on your turret should be for 35 yards, is it for you both? If your start point for counting clicks is different to begin with, then everything else will be off as well.

Can you both sit and shoot at 55 yards? One of you sets the rifle so that it is shooting correctly at the distance.
Shoot 5 shots, change nothing, pass to other shooter who again shoots 5 and see what happens? Do it off the bench as well to rule of position etc as well.

As has been asked I think, once the px has been set for a given distance, is it properly clear for both of you, of does it need changing to bring back into focus?
Primary zero is the same @ 30yds. Nothing was adjusted or changed between shooters, rifle, scope, mounts, pellets identical in both cases, there was no stock adjustments or velocity adjustments (although this was measured) Only difference being the shooters, this is where my thoughts are starting to go towards. As for px theremay be a yard diference in reading, but clicks where tested against known distances.
