    I have a 270 WSM that is a Model 70 Featherweight with the Walnut stock.

    Last fall I tried a Harris bipod on it several times but due to the shape of the stock the barrel sits at a downward angle and makes for awkward shooting positions.

    Does anybody have experience with this model or any ideas on a good way to set up a bipod?

    Thanks for the help!

    I have the exact same rifle, & have no issues with my Harris bi-pod.

    I will say that I learned the hard way NOT to pre load the bi-pod in any way what so ever, or my groups open up drasticly. There ain't a lot of wood up there, so the stock flexes pretty bad with any horizontal, or lateral load on the bipod. Anything but vertical load just kills accuracy with that stock.

    But I love my featherweight!!, & it's racked up its share of Bears, & quite a few Deer. See my signature & you'll see why I like a light weight, hard hitter.
