I have a Harris 9-13 on my SPS Varmint. It has done everything asked of it so far without complaint and I don't baby my gear. It is very stable and has held up well.

You will be in good hands with the Harris Bipods ................ I would say this that if your only shooting from a bench to get a BR series bipod.

Thanks for the info. Im gonna do some shooting on the ground but only during deer season. So I might just go with the BR series.

One more question about the bipods. Which size do you guys recommend the 6-9 inch or the 9-13 inch bipod?

The BR series is 6-9 and the other one up is the normal 9-13. For bench shooting the 9-13 is a little to much for my preference.

For hunting, the 9-13, for sure. When using a little sandbag on the rear stock, you can still do bench shooting with it on 9. If you're not really going to hunt, get the 6 to 9 so you can get a little closer to the ground, or your bench. On my hunting trip this year, I shot a doe at 240 yards while I was proned out on a hill. I had my Harris set at about 11 inches to get over the short grass for the shot. I wouldn't have been able to make the shot if I just had the 6-9.

I preffer the 9-13" on all of my rifles. I am a little bigger of a guy than most so the shorter bi-pods tend to have me hunched over to look down the scope. I think the make I use is Butler Creek and they are affordable. Never had a problem with grip of the feet even with cold weather which normally makes the rubber on the feet stiff and slippery.

is there any other place to order bi-pods without hitting about 100 bucks?
Midway USA usually has them in stock and about every 2-3 months places them on sale for $89. Midway is great to deal with.

I have 3 Harris bipods. 2 in 6-9" with svivel head and notched legs (my recommendation) and, my first one because I didn't know better at that time, a 9=13" fixed head and spring loaded legs (not recommended).

I also have a Rock Mount in 6-9" with a swivel head, but it's a poor copy of the Harris made offshore.

I went to walmart and bought a Winchester bipod for 35.00, it's a p.o.s. When I hook it up to my savage 110 spotter barrel, the weight of the barrel makes the bipod legs start to drop while shooting.

A bipod can be used and removed from gun to gun when need be.
I would spend the xtra $$ on the Harris good quality original

If you would of posted askin for info on the winchester bipod I would of told you myself that its a POS :D I had one a while back. Right after I pulled it out of the packaging I ran back to Wally World to return it for my money back.

Just got a Remi 700 BDL Varmit in .223 and want to put a Harris Bipod on it. Looking at the 12-25" swivel, but was told something about the Harris does not fit the flat front of the Varmint series.
Is this true, and what do I need to get touse the bipod?

Will be doing mostly ground hog hunting with it.


(This is my second 700. I bought a 700 22-250 in the mid-1980's that i sold to my brother who still has it!)
