Hunting and long range, mainly 200-700 yards. Want something as light as possible since I'll be spot and stalk hunting with it as well as shooting at a range.

Harris and atlas seem the be the 2 best on the market. They are pricey but have great reputations. I'm not sure on their respective weights. That being said I bought a Caldwell from academy last year and I'm very happy with it. I'm not sure what I would gain by upgrading.

Harris 6-9" make sure you get the swivel model with leg notches.

Atlas gets my vote. Switched to one from a Harris BRM-S and the Atlas is a huge improvement to me.

Really to be happy you need two the Harris BR model swivel notched for bench and Harris 13-27 for hunting

And for the price of one atlas you can have both Harris bipods

The BR/ 6-9 model is terrible for hunting but the best on the range or bench

No matter which model you choose it has to be able to swivel

Experimented and wasted a lot money on bipods and I went back to the harris but this time I went with the Larue BRM-S 6-9" LT706 QD combo. They chopped the top half of the original harris and used there LT mount cutting weight and giving you a lower profile I'm in love with this one, also added the tactical supply talons. But everybody has a different preference, I hunt and shoot prone so this setup fits my needs.

Dang those spikes look nasty killer. I guess if you ever get charged and can't get a shot off you can use them for a bayonet.

Harris 6-9" BRM-S

Been abusing one for five years without a breakdown. Heck it's got rust on it!

Also purchased an Atlas last year. I'm pretty sure I like the Harris better. Be sure to get a Pod Loc for the swivel nut so you wont need pliers to tighten it.

For hunting in terrain that does not afford prone, learn how to use your pack and / or fixed objects around you. I know a guy grin

Also look at the Harris offered by alamo four star. I would take this bipod over my atlas anyday.
