It's also widely used for the non-trigger hand (the web between your index finger and thumb) when shooting prone.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

From their website, IRT the MSC-T5A and T5; "It also has a butt hook that can be used to ride the bags or control your rifle with your non-trigger hand." JohnnyK.
