This is true and should be added to my post because it is very true on any
rifle,pistol or shot gun.
The way I check for fit is to have the person close there eyes and throw the rifle
or any other weapon up in the most comfortable position and open there eyes
with out adjusting there head and eye position.
If it is the right fit then you should be perfictly lined up with the scope,sights or the
vented rib of a shotgun.
DO this 4 or 5 times and you can determine what it will take to make it fit (Drop,cast
length of pull ,ETC).
The type of build,(Neck or no neck) scope (40mm 50mm or 56mm objective ) and even
most common shooting position (Standing or prone )can make a huge differance.
Thanks for the comments and every one feel free to add more comments after all
