how do you place butt stock ??

Okay here comes question of the day, when shooting prone do you place your butt stock close to neck or between shoulder joint ??
Secondly do you put butt stock directly on collar bone ?

Exactly where it sets is going to vary depending on what's most comfortable for each shooter, the conditions, and even how you are built.

Whenever possible you want as much meat between the stock and your bones as you can get especially in a rifle that has significant recoil.

If it's whipping left and right on you then it sounds like you are not squared up behind it thus creating a pivot point.

The recoil needs to come straight back or else it's going to have a really poor effect on your accuracy and will probably beat the hell out of your cheek as well.

You don't have to square your whole body behind it but you definitely do need to square up your shoulders.
