    Hi all,
    just keen to hear your thoughts on bipod types.
    some say harris type, some say atlas type.

    I'm going to get another bipod for my 700 police 308, for both target and hunting use.
    which is the better type and why?

    i have both types - on grass or uneven ground they perform about the same

    off the bench the atlas is easier to load (read: easier to shoot good groups)

    the harris is quicker to deploy though... they both have their pros and cons

      throwing in a curve ball my favorites are the Accuracy international Bipods (Both models) as well as the parker hale bipod and some of the Versapod models.

      not a huge fan of the atlas. its build quality is excellent but the pan and tilt adjustment is to stiff for me and needing to push a button to deploy the legs isnt something i like. if find manipulating the collar and extending the legs a bit frustrating to do in a controlled manner under stress.

      as for the harris i dont like the lack of pan , but for the price they are good really.

    whats pan?
    do you mean the ability to look left and right with one?

      I've got Harris in Fixed and Pan/Scan/Tilt types, also a Hyskor and Versapod - haven't had any issues with using any of them - I mainly use the longer leg ones (Harris/Hyskor) these days for snipping bunnies and fox whistling.
