The Best Bipod For Your Remington 700 Rifle
Without question, the Remington 700 is a very popular rifle and rightfully so. It can also be very accurate with the right scope. Sure, adding a scope to your Remington 700 is an obvious upgrade but do you know what a good bipod can do for your accuracy?
In this post, we go over the best bipods for Remington 700 and the pros and cons of each. You can spend more or less on a good bipod but we break down the best ones for you below.
This bipod weighs in at 13.3 ounces, and has a range from 8-13 inches. The legs allow panning, and it comes with dual mounts. It has all the basic stuff you expect in a mount. Spring tension to assist the folding mechanism and retractable legs, etc.
It’s crafted from aluminum, so you never need to worry about it rusting. This bipod also comes with a quick retract button.
It’s not the cheapest bipod on the market, but it doesn’t perform cheap either. It’s a solid mount for your 700 that won’t let you down in the field. Though it might be a bit too much elevation if your are shooting from prone.
For this price, it’s a great buy and a great addition to your 700.
When you first come across this bipod, it’s obvious that it’s built with a set height in mind, limiting the adjustabililty but targeting the most common bipod heights for most shooters. It only adjusts from 6-9 inches, meaning you have just enough wiggle room to set up solid on unlevel terrain, or an oddly shaped rock. And with 5 settings over that three inch range, it’s designed to do this task well.
Made from hardened steel and aluminum, the black anodized finish should keep the rust off. It weighs in at just over 11.5 ounces, which means even with the sturdy, steel component pieces, Ohuhu has managed to keep the weight down. No tilting or swiveling with this one. It’s a standard, lightweight bipod, built well, and at a great price.
People absolutely love this thing on Amazon, where you can get the best price on it.
A basic model from Harris Engineering. The BRM is built for toughness and functionality, not for looks or fancy gimmicks. The legs extend from 6 to 9 inches, keeping you close to the ground, and in that sweet range that props up your rifle while holding it stable.
This model is incredibly light, weighing in at 10.4 ounces, and it attaches vial swivel stud. For the extra money, you are getting an incredibly build, super sturdy mount. Harris Engineering is trusted as a leader in this area, and if there’s one thing to say about this mount, it would be that it won’t let you down.
Available in various sizes, Caldwell mounts are strong and light. Legs spring to action at the touch of a button. When you’re ready to shoot, you don’t need to be bothered with extra setup time. It’s fully rust proof, very stable, and the taller versions provide you with tons of ground clearance, but they also reduce the ability to shoot from prone.
On the downside, the springs are not perfect. You have plenty of weight savings to spend, so if you are the tinkering type, heavier springs would be an easy mod to make things a little nicer. The extended range of the bipod unfortunately also means that it doesn’t have a low setting for shooting from a prone position, so if you like laying on your belly, then this isn’t likely the scope for you.
If you want a Harris bipod, with it’s wonderful quality, but you’d like a taller model than the BRM, this LM model is probably what you are looking for. It extends, in one inch increments, to over a foot tall, and with the same ruggedness that you will find in the smaller version.
Super high quality, taller mount, and still only 11.2 ounces. How do they do it? Your guess is as good as mine. Unfortunately, we all know that no matter how well built, you can’t dodge physics forever.
The taller mount means that unfortunately, no matter how well they construct it, you simply aren’t going to get the same solid feeling that you get from the shorter version. But it’s probably sturdier than any other bipod you are going to find in this height range, unless you up the weight substantially.
It’s on sale right now on Amazon for a great price.
