Not so sure about that at all because there are too many variables for that too be correct, clothing, build, strength, balance, cant, rifle, head position, butt-hook, grip, personal tension profile - and the list goes on.
In fact everything I've read and seen suggests that is wrong and there can't be one rule that fits all. I'd agree with some generalisation but everything I've seen is a variation of the 5:3 principle and not put you're hand as far forward as possible, if I did that it would seriously unbalance me 100%.
