YouTube - Recoil Management, *Bipods Don't Hop*
Loading the bipod. Titles "Bipods dont Hop".
Have a look. Seems to me that even with the big guns (it even says it in one of these videos) that the 300WSM can be held on target at 100 yards.
Bipods are not as bad as people think. What is important is that no matter what you plan on hunting with, PRACTICE. Not just blow rounds down range. Perfect practice makes perfect. Treat every bullet like it is the last one on earth.
That said, no matter how you practice, use in practice what you are going to take to the field. If you dont plan on packing a 25 pound sand bag, dont shoot off of one in practice. If you plan on shooting off of a back pack with 3 days of food, you had better be practicing shooting off of that.
