"Best bipod to get for a rifle"

I lookin to either go with a three legged bogpod or find a reliable bipod to attach to the rifle.
Thoughts?

I use an Atlas bipod, it's the best in my opinion but definitely not light weight if that matters to you.

Just seen one in Muley Crazy's latest issue called The Javelin Super Lite at $295. There is also one Hatch Outdoors Bipod made in Idaho that weighs 19.6 oz at cost of $349.00

I've used a snipod 1 and 2 for years, lightweight but not the toughest.

I've seen the Harris still for sale and I'm interested. I'll have to look into the snipod

I like Atlas the best . but they are heavy.

MOA Rifles came out with a new light weight one , if I didn't already have so many bipods that's what I'd buy.

I just picked up the spartan with the "gunsmith" mount. The mount itself gets drilled and epoxied into the stock. Flush mount. Works with powerful magnets which lock the legs closed or open and allows you to remove the bipod in 1/2 second. It weighs 4.9 ounces.

It's badass. Mobility is 45 deg left and right. The legs are easy to adjust and I believe mine is 6-9"??? Something ruther...

$260 w/ mount at ultralight equipment. Did I mention it's badass?

Harris regular or military with the flexible base. Tried an atlas and some others. Some were stupid expensive but way more solid than a Harris. My beefs were: didn't get high enough to shoot sitting when you're in grass, were heavy or bulky or took too long to set up. Harris or the many copies out there now, since their patent timeline ran out, are my faves.

Did you have the bi pod with 3 section legs? Our extend about 36" plenty for sitting shot..

Another vote for the Javelin. I used it last year and I was very impressed.

Swagger...ok it came. Fast 3 days..Mounts (pretty) easy. Legs retract real well. The springs do make it real easy on uneven ground. Cows rubbed my 250 and 300 yard steel down so had to shoot 400.Ding ding ding! Coyote bedded tonight at 350. Wrong willow patch for the lead sled and the bull barrel. Got the truck 250 with the swagger..prone on grade. Being able to lean into the legs and having them move back under the gun helped with the Elevation i needed..dead coyote.
Down side will not fit in any case I own. Won't fit in Gun rack. I know it won't fit saddle scabbard. Not something you want to take on and off alot. Putting it on the target .308 next. If I go to the next Hill west I get another 200 yards on my steel plates..I am happy with it so far about 10 rounds 22.250. Watch their videos.

Early on I had the two section and was leaning over way too much for my liking. Have the three section now and it's plenty for a sitting shot. I put the shorter one on my prairie dog rifle.

I've been using the 3-legged Bog-Pod for about five years. They're really strong and provide a sturdy shooting platform. The only problem I have is that they are not easily adjustable when you need to make quick changes on uneven terrain. Great for setting up a scope on though.

I use the smaller mono-pod Trigger Stick when hunting out of a treestand and love it. The only problem with it is that the trigger adjustment fails when it's really cold outside. Not sure if they improved that issue with their latest models.

Good hunting
