Which Bipod??

I already have a bipod...but it's way too tall.

I shoot a .300 Winnie, with a brake. I would like to buy a shorter bipod but I'm not sure which one. It's mostly for out West hunting. I've been looking at the 6"-9" and th 9"-13", notched legs with a pivoting head. Considering Harris or Caldwell. And probably the pod-lock too.

What do most of you hunters use?

Thanx!

RH

Re: Which Bipod??

I too would like the opinions to the same question. I've been combing through the threads (on an iPhone,what a pain) and was getting ready to ask the same. I also hunt out west and will be using it for elk.
Thanks

The 6-9" harris swivel bipod is one of the better that i have used for its price range. If your not worried about cost the atlas or the lraccuracy bipod's are the best on the market.

Definately Stoney Point for me. Light sturdy, snaps off and on easily. So light I carry it in my pocket on mu BDUs. I use their short version, figure to make the shot I want I need to be prone somewhere.

I just this week received in a Stoney Point Rapid Pivot Bipod setup.

I bought the seated height version as that is how I like to be when hunting.

From the feel of testing it already, I think its going to fit the bill this season. Fast to put on, light weight and feels sturdy when on the rifle.

I run the Stoney point for sitting during coyote season but for LRH big game I use the 9-13, there is no way on earth I could shoot the 6-9 unless I could look out the top of my head! Go with the Harris, I'm on the other road and it works but you have to mechanic it. The Stoney point is nice also but not as solid as the Harris.
