Bipod Advice shooting stick advice

I just aquired a a Tikka T3 Lite Stainless in .308 with a KDF varmint muzzle break (no downward facing ports) with a Nikon Prostaff 4-12 x40 BDC mounted on a EGW rail to the butt stock I added a limb-saver

Im looking for recommendations for a Bi-pod including height above ground along with shooting stick recommendations or any other recommendations

FYI I'm 5'11 in if that matters
thanks in advance
Mike

Unless you can get prone, the bipods are not that great for stability. Use a tripod and you will never want a bipod. They are far more stable. I have a Bog Pod and I am way happier with that than with any bipod that I have ever used.

I have a Harris bipod that I will give you a great price on if you decide that you want a bipod. I also have the rifle sling with shooting stix built in that I have no use for.

If it's a 9-13" with swivel - send me a PM, as I need a couple.

Sorry, but it is like 11-26 or something like that. No swivel except up and down.

Re: Bipod Advice shooting stick advice

If you are planning to go with a bi-pod that will be mounted on the gun, I would recommend something that will go up to around 30 inches. That way you can use it in a sitting or kneeling position.

If you are interested in shooting sticks, I would strongly recommend looking at the Primo's. They have a one hand lever system that is quick and quiet, and they swivel. They are a few more dollars, but in my opinion, well worth it.

Re: Bipod Advice shooting stick advice

I am a bipod junk yard at this point.
The only things I will buy any more are:
1) the 9"-13" Harris swivel bipod
2) the 5-9" Atlas bipod.
