I might suspect some variation on natural point of aim might be involved.
For giggles try rotating the paper 90 degrees clockwise so the 30 is at the top and shoot down the page to the 22.

When I was competing in small-bore rifle where the targets had 10 bulls for score I found that the amount of movement shooting in the number sequence (across the target 1 2 3) was more work, especially when shooting prone, and lower scores than shooting the score bulls in column order (1 4 6 8) on the NRA A-17 or A-36 targets.
