Their website says the XDS HD is designed for the M-14 and AR 30.

Atlas is bringing out a new super heavy rifle model (one step up from F class) that they say will handle 30 lb+ rifles.

Think I'll wait and see as their stuff is all excellent.

Yes, that's the one I have on order for the LRH Store.

What about this one


GGG-1125 Standard Extreme Duty Bipod with Locking Cant

Alternatively, you could consider starting with a short, heavy duty tripod like this
Kirk Enterprises : MLB-1 Mighty Low Boy


I would not fit a ball head, but modify a regular bipod head so that one has adjustable pitch and roll drag. The less DOF it has, the more stable the rifle will be on it. In the ideal world, you would combine this type of tripod with a gimbal mount like this:


Jobu Design Pro2 Gimbal Head for DSLR Cameras BWG-PRO2B

This gimbal is made to support loads over 35lb.

We talked to Atlas at SHOT in January and they said a couple more months. I saw one, pretty impressive.

Re: HELP, cannot find very heavy rifle BiPod

My Edge weighs 21# and the Atlas on it works great even at full extension. It's the current model--not the "one up from F-Class". A couple questions: Did you purposely mount your scope at the pictured height? And, how do you like the IOR scope with the 40mm tube? Thanks
