most versatile/best bipod for PRS

Recommended Posts

I have a Ruger precision rifle in 6mm creed. What is the best/most versatile bipod for this rifle when used in a PRS match? Take into account cost also.

Harris is the top budget choice for under $100

Atlas BT10 is around $250 and is a definite step up.

Beyond that, the premium bipods like the Ckye and Thunderbeast bipods are $400-$500 and incredible.

Warne skyline is also a good option for around $300. That's what on have on the same rifle your using.

Wow- $400 to 500 for a bipod- I will have to check these out. Was thinking more on the line of a Harris which appears to be economical and functional. Thanks.

Idk about others, but I use a bipod maybe 10-15% of the time for a PRS match.

 

really depends on the COF.

but in general, if it’s not prone.  

Bag vs. bipod is normally a toss up for me.

 

in the same breathe, I’ve had

an atlas, atlas copy, and a harris.

 

after trying the ckyepod, I sold the rest, and bought another cykepod

 

Will likely never use another bipod, for PRS/prone shooting.

What do you think about the Sawke Keymod Bipod for Rifles - 6.5-9 Inch Tactical Rifle Bipod Adjustable,CNC QD Lever Mount,360 Degree Swivel Adapter with Bipod Spikes and Keymod Picatinny Rail Mount . Has anyone used it?

 

Apparently it swivels and pivots to account for uneven terrain. The cost is about $70 which would make it cost competitive with the Harris BRM.

If you're going to spend Harris money just get a Harris and be happy that you got a decent American product with a warranty. Those Chinese Atlas knockoffs are not just prone to break, they blatantly infringe on so many patents that I'd feel bad owning one.

ok Tony I agree with you- did not know it was a Chinese knockoff and that being said is not that well made, is prone to break and also infringes on many patents. Will spend my money on a USA, KY made Harris, probably the BRM. Thanks for the information.

The Magpul bipod is worth looking at also. The legs deploy quickly and its sturdier than it looks. Its not as versatile as an Atlas but then neither is the Harris and plenty of people do just fine with those.

I am very happy with my Ckye-pod.  It was more of a jump than going from a Harris to an Atlas.

Will check to see if anyone is using the Magpul bipod this weekend at our match- lots of shooters will be there. This will give me a chance to "try it" before buying it and I will be able to compare it to the Harris BRM-S.

I like the Atlas bipod. Expensive, but worth it. The harris is also good for the price. I also just picked up a Magpul bipod.

Another vote for the CKYE pod.  Yes it is expensive, but it is so versatile.  Pan, tilt, high, low, skinny, wide.  Put it on an arca  rail and now you have near and far to add to it.  I can make mine hug a round barrel top, or the convex barrel body if on its side.  Different length legs for logs or even hay bales.  One of most my most versatile pieces of kit, besides my saracen rear bag.

Tried a Magpul bipod this weekend at a match to compare it to the Harris BRM-S which I own. The Harris appears to be stronger and more durable but the Magpul has the pan feature that the Harris does not. How important is that? Do not know but do not use a bipod that much so it may not matter. Think I will stay with my Harris unit a stage/match indicates that I need a Magpul with the pan feature. Both bipods have the tilt feature for uneven ground and to center your bubble level.

Look into a  "Tiptop" by Peleton technolgy.  It tilts, it pans, it pivots, it is a chinese

knockoff of a Harris, for less bucks.  Amazon is your friend.

If you can save  for the CKYE POD then go all in 

if not a Harris BRM-S 6”-9” will suffice now until you get deeper into PRS game. Just go have a great time shooting that 6 Creed

Spend the $ on reloading components and shoot shoot shoot

Atlas bipodis very versatile and comes with a ton of adjustment features. It’s pricy but if you already have this kind of set up, then spending $200 on a bipod isn’t bad. Be carful tho. There are Chinese knock offs That are flooding the market. Buy from a reputable seller.

brownells. Midway USA. Optics planet. Euro optics. 
 

those are the ones I’ve used in the past. Be carful of your google searches tho. If you see an atlas bipod with a $200 dollar price tag that’s crossed out saying “sale! $75 dollars!” Stay way! Lol it’s gonna be a Chinese knock off. I know some people who buy these and are totally ok with it but in my experience, it’s a crap shoot. I recommend just buying once and crying once.
