It would be wonderful if rifle ranges made the lead sleds available for rent. They are not cheap but with my hands that can shake, it certainly help me to get it on target. The rest would be up to me. I really want one but have not found the courage to shell out the bucks to buy one.

It is fine to sight your rifle with the sled to get it close. You should then sight it from a position closer to how you will shoot in the field - prone, resting on your hand on bags, etc. Your point of impact between the sled and your prone might be an inch or two at 100 yards.

Subzero,you might also think about getting a Bulls Bag.I use one a lot when I doing load development.It's a lot cheaper and easier to use than a Leadsled.
Just fill the bag with Kitty litter.Mine weighs about 20lbs,and it reduces felt recoil really well,plus holds the rifle very steady.The surface that the rifle sets on is kinda tacky.Use a rear bag with it,and you can get your scope dialed in very fast.
