Re: bi pod hop

Load your bi-pod, and have a good shooter position.

Re: bi pod hop

There is no such thing! I have put thousands apon thousands of rounds down range off a bipod! In full auto I can keep the 1200 meter targets in the front lean and rest all day.

Now to your hunting rifle. You have to lean into it!

Thoughts:

Improper rifle design. Drop at comb is too much and bore is above the comb. The design should be that the rifle recoils straight back.

Improper shooting position. Shoulder should be pushed into the butt, putting forward pressure on the bipod legs (if it's a Harris type with the springs.)

Body position: This is arguable but I do best when the spine (mine) is lined up parallel to the line of bore. That is, straight behind the rifle. However this is difficult in the field unless the "hide" is set up for it.

Being a wimp I have a brake on my rifles (338 RUM Rem Factory. Custom 270 Allen Magnum) With the correct stock design and the brake the only shots I can't spot through the scope is when I've taken an improper shooting position.

Note that I don't use spring type bipods. I've machined my own out of aluminum. They are screwed solid to the forward sling nut.

Re: bi pod hop

Hi Lucas

Get some pod spikes from Robbie at Gunworks Canterbury
Then you can easily load your bipod in the field.
I assume you have a Harris ?
I have 4 sets & really rate them, they work for me
Just don't use them over your bonnet or you will need a paint repair
Cheers Greg.
