Re: Bipods

I've shot some very small groups w/a bipod. Honestly, I think for shooting things @ different ranges (ie: pd shoots, unknown and varying distance competitions, and hunting) the bipod is superior to the big rests. It allows you to move around and acquier targets much faster while still being just as steady in my opinion. The rests really shine when you are shooting multiple rounds @ one target @ one range. It amazes me how fast some of those BR guys can rack them off!!

Re: Bipods

I have no problems shooting well from a Harris... I shoot the 6"x9" and the 9x13" swivel models.

Re: Bipods

Well this is what I'm trying. Got a new rifle and working up loads. I'm trying to shoot groups @ 200yds of a bench with the bipods. I keep getting vertical strings on my best groups and some are just no good at all. This gun should be shooting in the .3's. Best group so far is about 1.2". I'm using a edgewood rear bag with med ears and a Br swivel front. I know it is probably me. I have a really cheap front rest but the bag is too narrow. I'm working on that right now!!
