This is kind of related to my topic on Anti Cant Devices.  After installing my scope tube mounted ACD and spending about on hour making sure that it was completely level with my reticle, and then making sure that my scope with ACD is perfectly level in the rings, I attached my Harris 9x12 standard Bi-pod and confirmed my past suspicions that the Harris causes my rifle to cant to the right.  It is very noticeable now with the ACD attached.   Removing the scope I stabilized the rifle and checked it with a bubble level and indeed the rifle with Bi-pod cants to the right.  My Rem 700 sports an HS Precision Sniper stock due to my almost no taper bull barrel.

 

Is this common with Harris standard bi-pods?  Would a Harris swivel Bi pod allow me to level the rifle and remove all canting of the rifle and scope?

 

Thanks for any and all replies.

The canting Harris bipod was developed to solve this problem. This sight has many entries use the search on canting. A shooter will have a natural tendency to cant the rifle in order not to creep on the cheek piece. Canting is not bad thing and no rules exist saying every thing needs to be square (although it does seem like an odd thing), just change the scope. Your ACD will still work or you can use the time proven technique of leveling the horizontal hair with the horizon or a window frame etc.

I just received my DPMS A3 bull barrel upper with free float tube.  My standard Harris does not cause any cant on this set up!  I will dedicate my standard to the new upper and purchase a Swivel Harris for my Remington 700 with HS Precision stock.

 

Thanks for all input.

I am going to get a Harris Swivel 11"-25" Bipod for my 7mm STW. The swivel feature is almost a neccessity for uneven terrain that you usually have to shoot from in the field. I also have a fixed Harris 6"-9" Benchrest Bipod for target shooting. Works well with a good rear sandbag rest.
