Alright, i'm getting my first Bi-pod because i want to shoot prone at the range. I've decided on the make (Harris Bi-pods) and what options (swivel with leg notches).
 
What I can't decide on is the specific model: BRM-S (6-9) or the LM-S (9-13).
 
Which do you all use for prone??? I've done a quick Google forum search and it's about 70-30 in favour of the BRM-S.

There is an easy way to tell.  Take some cardboard and cut it to the BRM and LM lengths.  Get in a prone position and rest lightly on the cardboard and see what works for you.  I have the both.  Depends on the circumstances, terrain, etc.

Thats great advise KB, I used the same method. You can always get someone to hold a ruler beside your forend as you hold in a comfortable prone position.

That would probably help. FWIW, I've never found the 9-13 to be too tall and have had some shots in tall grass where I really used the 13" length. Definitely get a swivel model. It really helps avoid any cant...and add a podloc or go here for a less-expensive version: http://t-nuts.com/index.php?cPath=73

grass, rocks and such can make a real difference as to the needed ht. I use the really long one sometimes and sit against a truck tire or tree
