    Too long and you will come off the stock on sharper angles.

    Too short and it eill bump you in the nose.

    Shoot for about 1" or so between your nose and thumb on the stock.

    Shorter provides for better gun control particularly in doubles. Too long and you have the tendency to "crawl up" on the stock and that in turn can lead to lifting the head if you get a bad pull, eratic target, etc.
