338 magnum is easily one of the most used long-range cartridge among shooters. There aren’t many guns as capable as Savage 338 Lapua when it comes to long-range shooting. Long-range shooting has its own caveats. From expensive ammo to expensive guns. Even then, you can’t shoot with full confidence without the help of a support.
The recoil and breathing pattern is not suitable for shooting without a support. That’s where bipods come in. The idea behind a gun bipod is the same as a camera one. It’s supposed to stabilize the gun and make sure you are hitting all shots.
But finding the right bipod for your Savage 338 Lapua can be more intimidating than you think. Don’t worry, we are here to help. Let’s start.
Best Savage 338 Lapua Bipod – [Editor’s Pick]
1. Atlas V8 BT10 Bipod – Two Screw 1913 Rail Clamp
Who doesn’t love some minimalism in their arsenal? The V8 from Atlas may not look as fancy as a V8 car engine, but it does look fancy enough to attach with your Lapua. There aren’t many extras going on with the Atlas.
But what’s really going on for it is the build quality. Atlas used 6061-T6 aluminum to make this bipod. That makes the bipod extremely durable and long-lasting. The bottom of the leg has protection and bumps that helps stabilize the V8 BT10 in uneven surface.
The price tag might be a bit of turn off for the most of you out there. But don’t let that price-tag keep you away from purchasing it. The performance and longevity of this bipod is easily one of the best out there. It’s not far fetched to all it the best bipod for Savage 338 Lapua.
In short, V8 BT10 will keep you satisfied with your 338 Lapua for years to come. When it comes to stabilization alone, I don’t think you can find a better performing bipod for Savage 338 Lapua.

Giving you the perfect height to aim at any uneven surface. The choice of material here is 7075 aluminum. The same type of aluminum you see in riflescope and aircrafts. You didn’t read that wrong. It’s the same type of material used in making in aircrafts.

5. CVLIFE 6-9 Inches Picatinny Bipod w/Adapter
CVLIFE Bipod comes in two different color to match your setup aesthetic. If you want a vintage color to match with your arsenal, you can totally opt for that option. But that’s not the only thing that makes the CVLIFE good. After all, it’s one of the most loved Bipod by hunters and tact shooters alike.
The build quality of this bipod is simply amazing. You don’t expect this quality of work with this low price-tag. CVLIFE used hardened steel and aluminum to make this bipod as durable as it is.

They used 7075 aluminum alloy with a non-rusting anodization.

Things To Keep in Mind Before Buying
If you have no clue about how to choose the right bipod for your gun, take this section for what it is. Just my two cents to help you choose the right bipod.
Depending on what kind of terrain and environment you will work, you should choose a tall or short Bipod. This is where we play the preference card.
Once you put in the bipod, you are not removing it till the shooting session ends. And that can go for a long time. You might switch places and go to a different spot. Having a lightweight bipod will make sure you are not carrying excess weight that will fatigue you easily.
Balance in all things, if the balance between the legs of the bipod is not good, it will wobble and will feel terrible while shooting.
I just hope you are not even more confused than ever. If you don’t want to bother with everything and just want to go with one bipod, take the one that fits in your budget. Budget should be a key thing here while selecting the best Savage Lapua bipod. That’s it for now, we will be back with more informative posts, tune in for that.
