Kinda like a "kisser button" on a bow string if you have ever used one of those. So, light but firm pressure and the same position each time.
Jeff, Is this a technique you came up with yourself that works for you? It this something that Shawn teaches?
I have typically found for me that I shoot best LR, with the entire weight of my head resting on the adj. cheekpiece (which is quite a bit! ;) ). That's the only way I've found to relax my head/neck completely resulting in less movement of the reticle. Unless you just barely touch the corner of your mouth to the stock, which it sounds like you do, it seems you'd get movement of the reticle. But doing that, it seems it'd be difficult to hold your head there without moving it, causing your sight picture to change...?
Just trying to understand the different styles and figure out what is best to do.
