I have used bipods but most times I am on some sort of incline viewing an opposite sidehill. Never can get quite comfortable, heading downhill with a bipod and the areas I hunt have quite a bit of weeds. The post that holds the slide pipe and bolt has a collar that allows pivot and lateral sliding in the front portion of the base. This gives me as close to 180 degree coverage from one position as I could figure while keeping the thing as small as I could.
This is my home bench set-up and I also drag it to any range I go to that has wobbly benches. Only ones I like better are the ones made of concrete. Then I use a Sinclair with windage top on which I have bolted an oversized footprint 1/2" stainless plate. Currently making my own benchtop rest, big and heavy, with a 1-1/2" center post bolt.
I have formed front bags that I interchange between the 3" flat bottomed rifles, the laminated savage stocks, and a couple of mushy ones to accomodate other types of rifles. Can shoot from the knees, from a stool, or standing stooped over. I prefer the stool.
