Re: Good bipod height?

Because of the terrain, i.e brush/grass I used 13 1/2" to 27" afield ... it allows me to shoot from prone to sitting position.

    I like your idea and understand if it isn't tall enough for "that shot that counts" then its basically worthless. But I would like to be able to get lower than 13. I think if I was only able to be at 1315 in prone it would make me more inaccurate than a good pair of shooting sticks.

    If I have the clearance that warrants the shot to be lower than 13", I stow away the bipod and use my backpack as a stable platform/rest to take the shot.

    this is exactly why I went with the 13 1/2-27 Harris. I had the same conversation with myself. Using a pack all the way up to the 27" bipod, I can shoot anywhere from completely prone to a good sitting position with an excellent sight picture.
