    Types of Bipod

    wondering how they work, as i have no familiarity. I know standard doesn't allow side to side, canting or swivel as there called do. Im wondering how stable the canting ones are, how do you keep it steady for a shot, etc? And whats the point of a standard bipod if it cant move side to side?

    you pick up and place the rifle, and then kinda drag the feet as much as the resting surface allows, it's really not that bad. I prefer the stability over mobility. Once you're set up for long range shooting you won't be doing that much swiveling anyway, the motion you'll be worrying about is the amount your breathing and heartrate causes, not the amount you are shifting the entire rifle.

    I kind of agree with you about bipods that dont cant. but i suppose for the budget minded shooter its alright as they are cheaper and i suppose the less moving parts you have the less chance of something going wrong, i guess. The pivoting bipods are pretty easy to use and stay fairly stable, you just point and shoot i guess ? rear sandbag helps.

    You want the 6-9 leg notch swivel. I believe Mel sells them here in the Snipercentral store.

    There are only 2 types of bipod. The good type and the bad type. :twisted:

    The Canadian C14 - the PGWDTI .338LM, has the Harris 6-9", swivel, notched leg, with PodLoc.

    I have 2 PGWDTI rifles that have them. I also have a Harris 9-13" fixed plus a 6-9" swivel Shooters Ridge Rock Mount.

    The SR Rock Mount is OK but it isn't the quality of the Harris plus the LocPod doesn't work with it because it's metric rather than SAE.
