    So, I picked up a Savage Arms Model 10 Chaote Sniper rifle last week.....

    ..almost identical to:

    It came with a decent Bushnell 3-9X32 scope, and I will be getting something with more magnification for it soon.

    Now I am in need of a good BiPod, and have zero knowledge in this area....

    If any of our great Steyr Club member base with experience in this area could please share with me the Do's and Don'ts,

    I would be eternally grateful!!!

    Cheers

    Bipod

    Harris, Harris, Harris.
    I have a Browning on my custom 10/22 and it is a P.O.S.
    Spend the extra money and grab a Harris, you will not be disappointed.

    Harris is the standard. However, they have a ton of different kinds. The have bipods from 3-6" extendable to 12-24" extendable. They also have swivel pods to your gun can move on top of the pod. Its kind of like a holster, whatever suits you. For me its a 6-9" rigid Harris Bipod.

    I'd agree with everyone else - you can't go wrong with a Harris bipod. I've got three.
    I prefer the ones that swivel, unless you are just going to shoot from a bench or level range set-up. If you shoot in the field, the longer 12"- 24" can be very useful, especially over long grass or other vegetation which would obscure everything when prone.

    I have to admit that I haven't tried any other brand bipods, apart from the integral one on my Steyr Scout, and years ago I had a Beretta AR70 with an integral bipod (still have the bipod and a magazine for that rifle).

    Be aware that rifles will bounce using a bipod on hard surfaces, though. This can disperse your groups a bit.

    I like the feel of the Choate stock, but they are FUGLY, IMO. I'd still go with a B&C Duramaxx stock for the Savage or the SSS stock.
