    I am thinking about a bi pod for my woodchuck rifle. A Savage mod 111 wood stock in 22-250. I have never used a bi pod before and never looked at any up close. How do they mount, and do they provide good stability? Any suggestions are of course welcome.

    I use several bi-pods and yes they do provide a rock steady rest. Most pods mount using the forward sling stud on your rifle. Pods are available in multiple heights for diffirent applications. I have found that a 7-13" model works very well for bench or prone. You will find a wide range of prices from $40 at wal-mart (good pod) to $150+ for a harris. (Harris makes darn fine bi-pods just pricey. Also bi-pods do not change you point of impact they just provide a stable forward rest for consistant accuracy.

    Well that certainly filled in all the blanks. I'll substitute Walmart for another store though. LOL
    Thank you for the help

    The cheap ones work......

    The Harris ones, (#2 pic,under $100) work better. They mount to the gun and
    provide a more stable shooting platform. Recommended for what you are
    going to be doing. IMO

    The Glaser bipod was replaced recently with another Harris. ;)
