    It depends on what you are comparing it to - the head and neck position on the existing gun used for the comparison. The check for LOP is the distance between the nose and thumb.

    The question that has to be answered to get a useful comparison however, is how upright is the neck? Is it leaned forward to place the cheek on the comb? If it is, a high rib is likely to allow a more upright head and neck posture and therefore require a shorter stock since the neck will not need to be leaned forward (as far).

    This makes some assumptions about the drop at the heel dimension on the two stocks or guns being equal, which may or may not be the case. For simplicity sake, it also assumes parallel combs. (Changing one stock dimension sometimes affects other dimensions.)
