    How about you post a picture of your two bipod setup.

    I would be interested to see how quick and easy it was to set up under hunting conditions?

    I can see it may have some merrit when shooting in long grass. A sand bag under the rear of the stock requires you to get down very low and long grass can be an issue.

    Yes the long grass is a pain, only thing worse is DEEEEEP snow. LOL
    There are some neat tripods on the market some have kicker legs also.
    just more to pack!
    When you guys find the perfect setup that replaces the sandbag, post lots of pics.
    I think I'll just mount mine to the roll bar of my 56 willies! J/K
    This is what makes it so fun.
    Going in light or having gadgets!! I love gadgets, hate packing them.

    G'day fellas,

    Shot some 3/8 and 1/2 groups from the 100m bench using two bipods on the weekend - basically the same as with a Caldwell Rock front rest and rear bag.

    Was shooting free recoil with a 22-243, so I'll try a 308 to see how a larger calibre goes.

    It certainly sits steady where you point it, and set up time is improving with practice.

    Havn't tried it in the field yet.

    I'll endeavour to post some photos.

    Cheers,

    Matt
