    Good not overly spendy bipods?

    I'm not exactly happy with the Caldwell bipods I have on my .308 AR and Savage .300WinMag. What's a good value in bipods these days?

    The bipods I'm running slide around too much on the bench, shooting mat, and the ground, loosen up and let the rifle cant too easily, and the .300 just lifts off the feet.

    Atlas is the one to have. It is pricey...especially compared to the Caldwell, but it is worth the money. The Short PSR with QD could be easily moved between all of your rifles.

    Harris is ok...but you will have the same problem of it sliding on the bench. The feet are still hard. You can change out the feet for atlas feet, but by that point you might as well buy an atlas.

    I added the Atlas feet to my Harris because I already had the bipod and the feet slide, the softer rubber Atlas feet stick to surfaces better. I bought an Atlas PSR for my TS Customs rifle and its amazing. The legs will turn on the Harris with Atlas feet, the PSR Atlas will not. It is not a cheap bipod, but I dont ever see it wearing out or breaking. Its built rock solid and it does more than 90° or stowed.

    For my Harris 6"-9" bipod all said and done I spent $180. $110ish on the swivel Harris bipod from Amazon. Added a throw lever, $20ish, the the Khantrol solutions Pod Mod Atlas feet adapters. The cheapest Atlas is about $220 and mounts to a pic rail. So you save some money on the Harris, but you aren't saving that much.

    Ditto to all the above on Harris and Atlas. Just stay away from the junk made by the "yellow peril "

    Harris bipod. Can find the BRM-S for $95 and then $20 for a pod lock and done. Strong, simple and cheap and performs.

    There are literally hundreds of Chinese knock offs of both Harris and especially atlas. Buy from a reputable authorized dealer or there is a good chance you will end up with junk. There is a difference between the two.

    I believe that is what the above post is referring to.
