Which size bipods?

What is considered the standard size of bipods to get, the 6-9" or the 9-13"?

    I shoot the 6-9" Harris bi-pods on my guns . I tried a 9-13 and it was too tall .

    Put the tripods on top of my backpack and/or coat.

    Shooting Sticks. Here we really don't have too much trouble since the cattle keep the grass cut.

    Okay, I got the Harris 6-9s, and was sighting in my new CZ550 Kevlar yesterday. It was my first experience shooting with the bipods, and I must say I'm a little frustrated. I couldn't get ANY consistency. The recoil was all over the place.

    I'm pretty new to this stuff, so any advice would be great. I finally pulled the damn things off and just shot from sandbags and finally started zeroing in, but not before I felt like throwing the whole shebang in the river. I've heard of others having this problem before and I assume its all technique since professional shooters don't seem to have this problem.

    Can someone give me some tips to shooting from the bipods to help?

    thanks.

    I've had the same problem....... found that "loading" the bipod by placing forward pressure on it settled it down considerably........
