Anyone have ideas how to sit the R26 properly in the Lead Sled DF2 rest?
The R26 doesn't fit into the front rest due to the wide front grip so it does not sit level.

The rear elevation adjust does not have enough stroke to level it, even with the elevation wheel all the way down.
I'm thinking a piece of 2x4 under the rear of the Lead Sled.

First time trying the R26 in the Lead Sled.
The front of the R26 is a PITA to fit in most any shooting rest, save for sand bags, due to the wide front grip.
Any ideas welcome.

Thanks.

OK how about this question:
Anyone using a solid rest, similar to a Caldwell Lead Sled DF2, that a Ravin R26's front grip will sit nicely in?

We even have a Bog DeathGrip Tripod that the R26's front grip does not sit nicely in due to it's curved, convex-like shape.
Of course, we can shoot from sandbag rests, and we have.
But for target shooting competitions, we want to get the R26 dialed in as tight as possible from 50 to 77 yards.
We are getting the strings changed out shortly.

Dang Ravin, change the front grip a little bit.
LOL,J/K!

Thanks for any ideas, Ravin users.

So, I took the Quiver and Crank Holder Bracket off, lo and behold, the Ravin R26 sits flat in the front cradle of the Lead Sled DF2.
It does not sit level and will require a 2x4 or similar shim underneath the back of the Lead Sled but it is great for working on the xbow too.

Got another SigSauer BDX Combo Scope system the other day and installed and levelled it tonight.
Need to secure the rings with a torque wrench tomorrow then will hang a plumb bob, weather permitting, and dial it in for 20 yards.
Hopefully get out and do some longer range shooting this weekend.
