    I believe it should be wherever it will be when it's on the stock, for me looking straight at my spot and leaning into it slightly. That way you bring the gun to your face not the other way round. If I stand too straight I tend to rock back on my heels when I swing on a hard right.

    It would be nice to have a head position where you are looking through the center of the lens of your shooting glasses. HMB

    I don't have the answer but I have the high rib gun which is not intuitive for pointing and does contribute to crossfiring and can feel like a disconnect. I have about a 2 1/2 inch drop at the heel. I believe cast/off at the comb could help with keeping eyes looking more through the optical centers at the cost of more facial abuse from recoil but I don't understand how lots of offset could accomplish the same purpose. I have deep set eye sockets and my eyes are closer together instead of wide apart. I don't get how a twisted sister type of stock would work for a shooter with an average build. The bunker shooters still seem to use a head forward neck bent down gun mount and only American Trap has the head/up style of shooting.

    It depends on the focal point of your glasses. You should have them made to suit your style.
