Re: which do you prefer, bi-pod or bags
I know this is an old thread, but if you are taking the trouble to use a bench, leave the bipod and continue using the sand bag. the bag you discribed is a more steady rest and you won't have to deal with the dreaded bipod hop off hard surfaces.
Now if you want a expedient, mobile, light weight rest and aren't using a bench, the bipod is the way to go.
