My feelings on bipods are not so extreme. Mostly I like them but there are days when I can't stand them. Of course it's my fault but hey, blaming something or someone other than self is the American Way.
I use them in "tactical" competitions, load development, general practice and fun shooting.
Changing surfaces or not using the bipod can and probably will change the POI. Learn what happens and be prepared.
Something important that I was taught early and prove over and over when I don't do it. Load the bipod the same way every time, pressure forward or rearward but the same. I was taught and use pressure forward.
Real Harris is the bottom grade I'll use. I tried the cut rate bipods and fo ged aboud it. I have a Sinclair and like it but I think any new ones will be Harris.
