I've got a 9-12" on a bolt gun with the swivel.  Works great, really like it.
CZ-75B 9mm and Kadet, 97B"E", two P-09's, P-07, P-10C, P-10F

I use a Evolution Bipod with carbon legs for all my bolt action rifles. I no longer waste my money on Harris.

I don't attach a bi-pod to my hunting rifles, they tend to snag on things when stalking. 

When hunting from a stand I use a tri-pod like this:

When walking and stalking I carry a mono-pod/walking stick like this:

 I've very rarely been able to shoot from a prone position on a game or pest animal. The vast majority of my shots were taken standing if stalking and sitting if hunting from a stand or blind.

I don't have any on swivel mounts but I have bipods on several rifles.

Rem M700 varmint special in .223.  Several AR15's in barrel lengths of 18, 20 and 24".  I also have one on my M1A.

The M700 was my ground hog/crow gun for about 3 years.  I preferred to shoot from the prone position.  Couldn't always, but anytime I could that's what I did.  I killed my first deer from the prone position.  No bipod though.

On the right rifle, in the right conditions, a bipod can be helpful.
I stopped carrying the SIG 556R.  SIG changed models and couple/three times and stopped supporting it with parts.  So, I stopped supporting SIG.  Back to the tried/true AR15 Carbine.

I have been using the Harris swivel versions for many years. They work great, and are easy to adjust. The terrain I generally hunt big game in, more often than not lends itself to longer shots, and the very vast majority of my shots are from the prone. Unless I am going ultralight, and shaving ounces wherever I can on a hunt, a bipod is pretty much standard equipment.
