Make sure you find a good anchor point. I put my knuckle in the same spot behind ear. And make sure your pin is in center of peep when you squeeze release.

Make sure all of your nocks are indexed the same way with the fletchings.If not a fletching may be barely hitting the arrow rest and causing the variation.

That would depend on which arrow rest though.

Without seeing your shooting style it is going to be hard to nail it down. You will, as you can see, get a lot of advice and opinions, so take that with a grain of salt. It could be that you are.dropping your arm, punching the trigger, not having a proper form, or ten other things.

Have somebody video your shooting style and post it up, or head ober to your local pro shop.

Are the same specific arrows hitting high every time and a different set of arrows hitting low every time? If yes, you have narrowed it down... maybe different field point weights or arrow weights / spine.

Hmm. How you figure that without knowing what he is using?

At 20 yards my 100 grain and 125 grain hit pretty much the same.place. Also my Aramids, Pile Drivers and Blue Streaks hit pretty durn close to the same spot as well at 20 yards.

If this is a potential problem, number your arrows and see if the same arrows shoot high/low etc. then you'll know it's your arrows and it will relate to tip weight, vane orientation to the rest etc.
As for your peep, I see a lot of peeps served in with two servings, one above and one below the peep both the prep and the servings can"feel" tight but still be slipping and it doesn't take much to cause what you are describing. The solution to this problem is to do a continues serving starting at the top or the bottom you make your first serving then wrap it around one of the splits in the bow string, make a wrap or two around the peep itself and continue up the opposite side if the split then make your other serving. The peep cannot move when done this way. Good luck
