Does anyone use those spring loaded bipods?

Where im from they cost around 75$ and i was wondering if they would be a worthy investment. I shoot alot laying down and I dont realy want to carry a walking stick rest around.

I use Harris bi pods. I've got them on 3 of my rifles. They work pretty good. Except on my 7400. The accuracy goes for a dump when i use the bi pod. If you get a bi pod get one with a "belly piviot" Works good for un even ground.

My 270 wsm wears a Harris. It does come in handy but, not for every situation.
I also make sure I have a crumply hat or a small pack.

I have a harris bi-pod as well that I use on my rem sendero and my heavy barrel varmint rifle but it is not an attachment I want to use on a stalk. It has its place on my rifle when I am sitting but I'll use a tree, stump, or backpack instead if I am on the move because the bi-pod is heavy and cumbersome on the stalk.

I have 2 Harris 25 inch
one on my 223 bull barrel and one on my 30-06 bolt action.
They work very well for me.

I use Harrid bipods to hunt rockchucks in Idaho. The terrain is very rough and rocky and we beat the snot out of our bipods. I'm telling you that you can't hurt a harris. You will never regret getting one if you need a steady rest on the go. Thumbs up

rests

Rambo,
I haven't used them but I bought stoney point bipod and just can't get myself to drag them along. There was a couple of times I could have used them deer hunting but didn't have them with me. I am used to hunting with my rifle in my hands ready for bear or quick shots at deer and this seems more important. I suppose if I didn't have to be prepared for a quick shot I would use them if it wasn't so brushy.

Thanks for the input, I was looking at SIR mail order in winnipeg but they dont seem to sell harris bipods, not that i can find anyway. There are ones here that look ok for 75$ or so. The terrain here in November hunting season in the fields isbasicly rolling hills and flat lands with little brush, untill you go a few kilometers north then its nothing but bush and lakes.
