    At long range you have a lot of time to get back on target comparatively vs shorter range and there are numerous factors that add up to how much your scope moves off target above and beyond loading the bipod. The weight of your rifle and caliber as well as bullet weight and load all affect it greatly.

    There are a lot of folks who actually prefer "free recoil" but they are generally shooting heavier rigs that don't have a substantial recoil or very little muzzle flip in spite of the recoil.

    Great points. On my varmint rigs I can watch impact at pretty much all yardage since they are heavy rifles and little calibers. My sheep rifle is much harder because it's so light. Thanks for clarifying that.

    I purchased an Atlas, after having used the Harris for many many years, and to be honest, I was underwhelmed by it. The build quality is very high, but the conctps could be improved in my opinion.
    I have no use for the 45° leg positions, however having the option to go just beyong vertical/90° in both directions would be nice. No one seems to offer this?
