Looking to pick up an atlas bipod to put on a tikka. Definitely am going with the quick detachable mount and forend rail. Trying to decide between the V8 or the PSR. General use practice shooting and mountain hunting here on CO and various destinations for sheep/goat.

I’ve got the V8. It’s worked well and is super stable. I’ve used it on my 300 Nosler and 6.5 PRC for both range time and various hunts. It took me some time to get comfortable with maneuvering it since I’ve always had Harris bi-pods and they are 100% different. Expensive but high quality and works well.

Would you suggest the Harris over the atlas? I know you can get a quick detach adapter for the Harris as well. I just leaned toward the atlas do to the smaller size/less bulky.

If the V8 still has rotating legs I would look at the PSR or CAL. On certain surfaces the V8 can run away from you. After using both extensively I prefer the CAL, I’m not a fan of the panning feature on the PSR but some guys love it so it’s personal preference.

I've been running the Atlas PSR- tall, with the ADM-170-S pic mount for a few years, and love the thing. I don't think there's anything out there that would make me want to switch. Used Harris for years prior, and will never go back to harris on my primary rifles as long as I have an Atlas around.

Only advantage to the tall Harris pods I've found is if you want to shoot from sitting position to shoot over brush, in certain situations.

I definitely prefer the Atlas now that I’ve gotten comfortable with how it functions. If you asked me the first few months I had it, I would have said otherwise.
