Depending on how stiff the stock is, you want to easily clear the barrel even when the stock is under pressure from typical holds (bipods, shoulder, bags etc.).
If it will clear 2-3 business cards under all those conditions, you are good. Extra clearance is just a visual thing and won't affect performance, unless you get junk in there while hunting.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
