I think I got the wrong bi pod. I have been shooting off the L model which has legs of 9-13 inches. I find that at the 9 inch position it is too high and I'm sticking bags under the buttstock. I'm looking to get the R model with 6-9 inch legs but am unaware of the draw backs to that length. What are using and why?

Yes, I run the 6-9 Harris swivel bipod. I have the one also that is non-swivel, and which it were swivel. The Atlas bipods are also nice. More expensive, but work very well also. I have one of those on my TRG 42.

I use the 6-9" legs, only ones I've used all other seem way too tall for me. Closer to the ground I am the better.

6 - 9 swivel (S-BRM model) and spend the extra $14 and get the extended handle to really tighten up the swivel mechanism.

Be careful if buying online. I recently made a mistake and didn't notice there is a NOTCHED leg version and one that doesn't have notches. I want the notched but got the continuous/friction one instead.

Thanks guys. I'm going by Cabela's after work to exchange, if they'll let me. So, who uses the tall ones?

You're not alone, I have the taller Harris and it's awkward at best. 6-9 is better. I'll add a second vote for ponying up the extra funds and investing in an Atlas if it's possible. It can be shuffled around to different rifles in a matter of seconds. And I've found that is it a much more versatile solution for a wider variety of shooting situations. And adding a short rail section to a fiberglass stock isn't hard. It's worth the initial efforts.

The Atlas is more versatile, no doubt. I use it on my competition 6.5 Creedmoor, and my LR308. But during load development, zeroing, and getting DOPE on a rilfe, I feel more stable on a Harris. The Atlas, at its shortest length is a little taller than I'd like, and there is a little bit of play in the notches on the hinge.

Maybe I should keep the tall one and get the shorter one until I grow into the tall one. The button on these pants is telling me it's a good idea.
