    I recently purchased a Savage M10 .308 and I would like to put a bi-pod on it. Can anyone suggest a good, reasonably priced bi-pod?
    Thanks
    Doc.

    I really like the Harris-S (Harris with locking Swivel attachment).
    - Pro: High quality and will last a long time
    - Con: Will run you about $110 to $150 with shipping.

    But if you aren't going to use it a lot, the Blackhawk or Caldwell would work.
    - Pro: Cheaper than Harris
    - Con: I know people break them with lots of use.

    +1 for the Harris S. (Benchrest model)

    I'll probably buy an Atlas next time though.

    I pefer the versa pod #52. but the harris with locking feature works also. just make sure you get the right height and that it has a way to lock it up solid. BIG help.

    harris is the gold standard. I do like the Swivel action. typical 6-9 incher is great for bench / prone, Midway is having a sale on harris stuff right now.

    but if your really a gun geek, and want what some concider the best bipod out there, and want to spend about 2.5x more than a harris

    there is the Atlas Atlas BT10 Bipod 1913 Picatinny Rail Mount 4.75 to 9 Aluminum Black


    i uasually go for the "Cry once, be happy for life factor" meaning a few more bux on a harris that will last a lifetime, i think is worth the investment.
    that being said i still dont have an Atlas...

    +1 on the Atlas, but with the quick disconnect. It is expensive, but so easy to hop from one rifle to another. Fun to be able to use a $220 bipod on a $200 .22 :)

    So far I will say I like the Harris best out of the ones I have tried, I picked up an A1 used on ebay for 30 bucks plus shipping....you just have to be on top of it for the deals lol.

    Picked up a "shooters ridge" the other day from amazon since i couldn't afford the money (or patienceto wait on a deal) for another harris....seems to be a harris clone and pretty well made for the money - but no real use yet so can't say how it will hold up for sure.
