Advantage of Bipods and Tripods when Rifle Hunting

How steady can one be?

 

 

When the time comes for taking that critical shot, and you concentrate on your breathing , counting your heartbeats, and prepare to squeeze that trigger, can you still be sure that the rifle itself is completely solidly stone cold motionless? If you have ever watched a precision shooter practice at the range, most often, especially law enforcement, they will have a weighted shooting vest on to keep that rifle steady for the shot. However, that just isn’t a reality when it comes to hunting in the field. Sighting in on the range for a competition shoot or before the hunt won’t usually find us in one either. But the stability of that rifle as well as yourself is critical for the accuracy of the round exiting that barrel and striking that hair in the scope, or center of target.

Enter the world of the tripod and the bipod. On the range it is so much easier to use than sand bags, and it travels with you and your rifle or pistol. In the field, depending on where you will be hunting, whether it be the 150 yard shot or the 400 yard shot, a tripod can make the difference of a hit or miss. Look at the setup of any varmint hunter and you will most often see a bi-pod attached to his .223 or 22-250.

Today’s bipods and tripods are lightweight, collapsible and some even swivel for the shot. The confidence that you will have when you look through the scope at your target, knowing that your rifle is steady and your round will strike true is something ever shooter want.
