Weak side cheek weld.
I have a really hard time getting a proper check weld when using a weakside hold. so much so that sometimes i can't find the red dot. Are there any drills to assist with this? Has anyone else had alot of trouble?
I would just say practice, practice, practice....I know that's not a lot of advice, but that's the only thing that will make it more natural for you.
Every time you bring it up into your shoulder just think about the fundamentals....Heel of the stock high in the pocket, keep your head as erect as possible, place your cheek on the stock in the same place every time (aided by placing the heel of the stock in the same place in your shoulder every time), maintain consistent pressure on the stock with your cheek...and remember natural point of aim, bone support and muscular relaxation.
And remember the old adage, "practice does not make perfect, only perfect practice makes perfect". If you keep practicing the same mistakes, you will keep making the same mistakes.
What helped me was using nose to charging handle.
When I started doing that, the dot was there everytime, and also helped with irons.
Fundamentals dude, they work.
Slowly think of a mirror immage from one side to the other. Mount it up then really slowly, one move at a time work through the transition.
Repeat a bunch of times.
Sorry. Droid tap.
Dry run them 25 times a day for a week.
Problem solved. Just make sure you are doing PROPER transitions, not just throwing the thing over there. Put on your sling, do it right.
What kind of dot are your running? Shooting support side I have trouble picking up the dot with a Aimpoint T1, but I never had a problem with my CompML2.
If you normally shoot right-handed with your left eye closed, this can cause problems with a support side mounting of the rifle as your eye won't be in line with the optic. Either learn to shoot with both eyes open or remember to open your left eye and close your right.
As mentioned, practice. Try starting with using your off side shoulder wiht your hands at their strong side positions, then work your way to switching hand positions. ie, use left shoulder, eyes open, with right hand on pistol grip, tehn after that feels good, switch hands to a full lefty shooting position.
As everyone else said, practice it. A lot.
