I third that - I have a Harris ultra light on my 24" AR. Purchase it directly from Harris - it's cheaper and you will receive it quite quickly.

I've got my 3 stage Harris on my .308 right now...about to take it off for my Merkel (sp?) Texas trip Thanksgiving weekend. Don't think I'll be needing it sittin in a stand.

I'll probably take it with me just in case.

What is the point of the notched versions of Harris bipods? Does that just allow you to adjust in 1" increments? Anybody recommend one or the other? (This is for a 20" Remington 700 in .308)

I use and love the Benchrest Bi-pod from Harris. Should be perfect for your Remmy

That is the one I want (6" - 9") but I don't know whether to get notched or not. I know I don't want the swivel version.

Swivel is good if you want to hunt with it.

I do plan on hunting with it, but I am completely new to hunting so why would the swivel help there?

it allows you to pan while the bipod is planted. The bipod feet stay stationary, and the mount swivels to allow you to pan left to right and track prey.

I don't have a swivel version on my AR because I find the rigid ones to be more accurate... and at the long ranges I plan on shooting game at, even if it moves 40 feet in either direction, it's only half an inch on my gun.

Wow. That gun is nice! I want an AR-10 pretty badly but they are not cheap. One day...

I have a cheapy UTG bipod that swivels and even though I wasn't thinking about it at the time but I was using it for that exact reason. I think I will stick with the non-swivel for now and see how that works out. I think I need the stability more than the flexibility right now.
