Thanks for the reply. Could you tell me which size (height) bipod you use?
Of the top of my head, I believe this is the model
Model H: (High) For prone or sitting shooting, it's the best for varmint shooting. Adjustable from 13 1/2" to 23"
It's short enough to go prone with and tall enough for sitting position shots. I've made several long distance shots from both positions and really rely on that bipod.
There are also cheaper models out there than Harris, but I've been very happy with mine and I think you'll find it a much better option that shooting sticks.
