Would like to get a bipod for a couple of my guns.  Specifically both my .22 and 30-06.  I think I've got the right heights for each figured out, but I can't decide on whether to go with a fixed or swivel mount.  Both guns will be used for both hunting and target shooting.

Any suggestions or advice?

Harris Bipod with the pivot on it.  Have one on my 300 and love it.  Especially for hunting.  Makes a big difference on uneven ground.

Dale,
What is the advantage of the notches?

the tension mechanism on the infinity adjustment will vibrate lose and drop the legs, when you need it most.

 I don't use it much but I have an old non-swiveling Harris. I took the legs to a machinist buddy and he cut multiple grooves around both legs a quarter inch apart.  Makes it much more reliable and adjustable.
