Can I get some recommendations on a bipod for my ELR rig? Can not do an Elite Iron due to size of barrel/cant of bipod rail.
Would prefer an option to use an Arca rail

You can order these with Arca. I use one on my 375. It’s solid.

Who sells that Arca rail you installed?

I 2nd the HD-50. Just started using one a few weeks ago and like it over my Atlas 5H.

If topmount was ever an option, Fortmeier makes a pretty good one. I personally love the pendulum Effect.

My gun builder fabricated it.

    What is the diameter of your barrel? One of my ELR rifles has a 1.45 barrel and 40 MOA rail and no issues with Elite Iron.

    Did you contact Elite Iron and were told they cannot help?

    One thing to consider is the amount of torque generated when firing large calibers with heavy bullets. I prefer having the apex of the bi-pod above the barrel since it eliminates a hinge point.

    I've never shot anything ELR, nor do I own any ELR type rifles, but I did own an Atlas 5H that was a beast and I think it would work.

    I may be wrong, too.

    A Phoenix if you’re on slabs or prepared ground
    A elite iron if you’re in rougher conditions.
    Atlas SCAL is another good option.

    Those are DOA Shooting Bench. The are made in St George UT. We use them for matches and just fun shooting.
    The bench in the picture are special order as the are much larger then the stock tops they sell.
