Re: which do you prefer, bi-pod or bags

I have a couple of the BR swivel bi-pods with the notched legs. They seem like the cats meow, nice and steady, but I can't hit jack with them. We much prefer bags for extended ranges.

When I was young we could go out and drive through a couple logging units and shoot 25 squirrels a day. We called the activity, "digger shootin." Now we hunt for days just to shoot 2 squirrels. Now we call it, "digger huntin." I much prefer the "shootin" over the "huntin."

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.
