If you have aproper stroke, the buttcap will "point" toward the ball without any thought or conscious control on your part.

Here's why- when you start the stroke, and begin to pull the racket forward to the ball, the head of the racket (remember inertia and the laws of physics) lags behind-- causing the buttcap to lead the way-- until the head, eventually, catches up to speed and swings around into striking position.

So, my advice-- don't practice pointing the buttcap-- rather, practice hitting a proper stroke. Use the buttcap (if you must) as a check-point (once in a while) just to make sure you are not forcing or over-controling the stroke.
