PC Carbine and newby to red dot

Got a chance to put some rounds through the PC carbine.
50 hand loads with no issues and one failure to eject with 50 Herters 115 grain. Just an observation but the Herters felt a little hotter than the handloads as I load to the bottom of the spectrum.

Grandsons did most of the shooting but was surprised to find they were hitting about 4” higher than I was on the target. I verified this with the same ammo they were shooting.

Is it normal to get this much variation between shooters with a red dot sight. Just a Tru Glo economy sight if that makes any difference.

My 3 sons in law all shoot my guns to different points of aim. Yes up to 4 inches is not unusual.

I’ve also noticed point of impact changes when someone else shoots my guns with red dots. I don’t remember if it happened with the scoped rifles. I chalked it up to how each shooter “sees” the target with the red dot.

Most people wont accept the fact that not all human eyes are exactly alike .
The differences in the size & shape of the eye ball itself , the retina & lenses inside the eyes all conspire to make a perfectly sighted in rifle for me...shoot off for you .
My own two eyes are different from each other ...my right has a slightly different eyeglass prescription from the left...they are different .
So what you see isn't unusual . That's why a person needs to verify their sights if another person sights the gun in...it could well be different .
If you think about it most everything a human has on his body is slightly different from each other .

Exactly. There are a few factors. How good is their vision? What is their dominant eye? Do they shoot lefty or righty with the opposite eye? How much eye relief do they use with the optic? Etc......
