    Solid Bipod or Swivel?

    I have a Rem SPS Varmint .243 in a B&C A5 stock. Don't know which harris bipod to get. I assume the 6"-9" but should i get the swivel or solid? is the swivel too easy to move and effect accuracy? Thanks guys

    mostly paper probably. not sure about prone or at a bench. i guess the pod should be for prone i could always shoot from a bag on the bench

    I would go solid with either. The only reason i asked because, in my opinion, if you are paper punching you can adjust yourself to the paper and stay there, but if your chasing furry things all over the place you may want a little play/swing especially with uneven ground.

    Get the swivel if you ever plan on using it anywhere but a flat firing line. I would never go back to nonswivel after using swiveled Harris bipods.

    Also get the M version with the notched legs as it's easier to adjust especially with one hand than the standard friction tightening model.

    Are the Caldwell pods any good? just wondering if it's worth paying for the titanium pod. are their swivels pretty much the same as the Harris? if they are good as well i might try one out, if nothing else the extra cost would at least hack my wife off. :lol:

    You actually have to try to do that?? :shock: I came home the other night and she was three shades of hacked.... although it also took me about 45 minutes to make a 5 minute trip to the mailbox. :roll:

    Stick with the Harris unless you have money to burn which I don't.
