Bipod on back swivel stud

G'day fella's,

I was just wondering if anyone out there has tried using a bipod on the back swivel stud as well as the front one?

I tried it on the weekend with my 22-243 out to 700 yards shooting steel from a bench. It seem to work well once I got the hang of adjusting elevation with the legs on the back bipod.

I used a short Harris on the back and a medium Harris on the front. I going to keep practising to see whether it is worth the effort. If it works out I might even install a Freeland rail in the heel of a stock and try that as a means of adjusting elevation smoothly.

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Matt

Never tried it myself.
How fast can you set it up for a shot with everything folded up?

Re: Bipod on back swivel stud

There are mono pods on the market.
I've never used one, everybody I knew that had one, don't now??
the bipod would take twice as long to adjust.

The monopod made your setup like a three legged setup with front bipod.

Sorry not much help, but it has been tried just never seen anybody keep using them.

Re: Bipod on back swivel stud

Too much effort for me.

I use a solid bipod, no springs, hinges etc.

Like grit said, I just squeeze the bag. But in a very special way.
