A roto-tilt/pivoting type is more versatile. A B-Square brand will run ~ $35 and aren't bad but only go from 9"- 20" which is low for a sitting position, at least for myself. Stoney Points aren't bad and only slightly more expensive and come in different heights. Love Harris bipods but they start around $100, well worth it to me.

The only bipod I use anymore is a Harris. I've found that the cheaper ones do not last and do not take much abuse.

I'm not sure of the height that you are looking for, but I would fully reccomend a Harris swiveling bipod with standard legs. The are cases where I like leg notches better, but for most situations, the standard legs are a bit more versatile. The install a KMW Pod-Loc, and you would be GTG in any and all situations.

BTW, I would buy another swivel sud and itstall it in your stock. Just drill and install the stud. You could epoxy it in just to be sure it doesn't move, but it would be hard to remove it if you ever wanted to. It is not comfortable at all to put the sling directly to the bipod and carry it any distance.

Im a big time Savage fan! I never have used a bipod , but carry a set of homemade shooting sticks made from 2 wooden dowls lashed together with a pc. of rubber inner tube. Ive used them for yrs, and when you anchor your elbow its as rock solid as a bench and dont affect the looks or balance of the rifle like a bipod will. Just something to think about.

Hey! Those are the shooting sticks I use as well, just with a few castration bands instead of inner tube.

They work very well, and you would happen to lose them, it only costs you a few bucks.

Count me in with the other Savage fans. Bad thing is, you can't have just one!
