You are not going to be getting minute of angle accuracy out of a GI 16" barrel much past 100 yards, and there is no real reason to add a bipod to such a weapon.
Get yourself a backpack, or a range bag, and gentle cradle the weapon across the top of if for longer shooting.
If you get a 20" varminter, and have a free floated forend for shooting out to 500-600, then think about a bipod...
