    I have a question about "Prone Supported" placement of the recoil pad. It seems like I always end up rolling my shoulder to far forward and placing the recoil pad on top of my shoulder. In essence, 45 degrees from placement location when shooting "Off-Hand". It looks like you are actually trapping the buttstock in your arm pit more then mounting into the shoulder. Am I just not not seeing that properly?

    Thanks in advance!
