As seen in this picture (although the butt end loop should only be a hand span wide in order to be correct).
That has always been an issue with me jrhead. The rule when I served in the RAF was that the butt end loop was as tight as possible, ie through the swivel & fasten. Now I recognise that the only time I carried a rifle was on parades so possibly that was the reason as it brings the top down in line with the mag & gave a good sound on the command, General Salute, Present Arms. Perhaps other forum members with service in the British Army could shed some light.
