Harris, but whatever you need for your application. I had one on my 700. 6-9" attached to sling stud...

After you look at Atlas, Harris is a fair price. Lol.

I used Harris at work and have them in personal guns. I prefer the notched legs with swivel. But if you do the swivel definetly spend a few bucks and buy the Pod Lok conversion. I like the 6-9". If I need more lift I shoot off my pack or sticks.

So what are the thoughts of long range shooting? Are the bi-pods or bags going to give more accuracy? I seem to have better luck with bags.

I use the Harris 6-9" with the notched legs. The Atlas is real nice but pricey.

Depends on the surface I have to shoot off of and the speed of which i have to deploy the rifle. I prefer a pack for front support when i set up. Obviously for precision shots and great distance some form a rear support ie. bags is needed. the more you are touching the gun the more room for error exists at great range. i.e. movement from your pulse even

Mike, Using a bi-pod front and bags rear leaves me not touching the gun. Does recoil of a free standing rifle barrel off the bi-pod effect the shot or is it better to have a hand on the forearm to reduce recoil?

There is more than one way to shoot it the key is consistency and repeatability. When prone I like to load the bipod legs with body weight forward. Weight not muscle tension. Pull but back into shoulder with firing grip and use support hand to work bags under the stock. Pretty common. Some folk shoot looser and tighter than others. But it needs to be same regardless of the method. Loose senses more recoil.
