It’s not that bad if you have a bipod that you can tighten the tension a bit more so it won’t turn too easily. I haven’t had any issues doing so with an Atlas or Harris bipod. That being said, the Atlas is $200+ and Harris is $100 respectively. Atlas also adds a decent bit of weight to the rifle as well. Probably the easiest and most cost effective solution is to throw your pack on the ground and use it as a rest for your rifle.
Edit: Also another caveat. If you use a bipod make sure you zero your rifle on the type of ground you’ll be shooting off of. If you zero with your bipod on the grass and shoot a round while your bipod is on rocks the harmonics will be affected and may throw off your shot at distance.
If you’re talking pivot like to traverse the rifle even a pivot won’t do much without moving your body or the bipod. And with a Harris style it’s mounted to a fixed position on the rifle.
I find shooting sticks or tripods to be the most versatile.
