Shooting Instructors Favorite Bipods
By Scott Austin
I recently purchased a Long Range Accuracy Light Tactical Bipod (long version) for my 6.5 Creedmoor Ruger Precision Rifle, 6.5 Grendel Alexander Arms Overwatch and .300 Win. Mag. Remington 700 5R Milspec.
As a firearms instructor, I have had numerous opportunities to use many makes, models and styles of bipods, bags and supports which span the budget and quality spectrum from A-Z. Without question this is the most solid, versatile and comfortable bipod I have ever used. Did I say solid? If my truck ever needs an axle support while in the back-country I now have a dual-purpose tool.
One extremely useful design feature is how the bore axis sits so low in the bipod itself (think F-Class bipod designed by Porsche). This design allows for a much more inline recoil path that has to be experienced to be believed. Watching my own vapor trails is much more common with this setup.
I would never have guessed I would invest this much in a bipod, however after using it, I will never go back. Having a solid (repeatable) foundation for your shooting platform can’t be overstated enough.
