Question about bi-pods

Just got a hariss bi-pod. Will this thing move my point of impact any. I could see where it might change a little because of the added weight...Jim

It will if it is attached to the barrel because you are inducing a bend from the weight of the rifle.

On the front swivel on the stock, it may, if the the stock bends to touch the barrel (changing from freefloating barrel to a contact point). The only way to find out is to try it. Also, mount the bipod, and run a business card between the barrel and the stock.
