how many trigger jobs

had my xpro trigger adjusted to 3lbs from the 8 it came from the factory on my 338 RUM xcr and it made a world of difference
my question is a timmey or jewel going to make even a bigger difference
thanks

    personally i think the only way to go is with a jewel , if you are willing to pay that much for a trigger, they arent cheap. timmey's are alright but i dont think its worth it over a quilty trigger job on the factory one. just my 2 cents.

    A trigger is the first thing I do with every firearm (pistol, rifle or shot that I buy. It's also the first thing people notice about my firearms when they shoot them. A crisp 3lb trigger is better than 95% of all rifles out there. I like a little lighter than 3lb's for a long range type rifle, but 3lbs is definitely usable. I have a Timney in my 7RM set at 1lb and it is great. My competition cowboy guns are all set at 1lb with zero creep. It all depends on what you want and what you're using them for.

    Although a Timney is FAR from a 'top end' bench trigger, they can be pretty good. My 338AM has a Jewel trigger, but I haven't played with it yet. Many standard Remington triggers can feel very good. I haven't played with the Xpro, however I've heard that with the Xpro, you don't need an after market trigger like a Timney or Jewel for most applications.

    Good luck,

    AJ

    I am not a pro by any means but I put a Timney in my 280 for hunting and set it just a bump under 3lbs with zero creep and its the berries. I am sure there is better but when it comes to all the money you have to throw at your tool I think you can spend what you save by buying a Timney in better places. Take into consideration I have not used the other triggers out there and you should probably shoot a few before you throw down.

    Once you use a Jewell you will be ruined---I use them for my competition rifles and my Sporters. The competition ones are blueprinted and actually feel like ball bearings… Very nice equipment and worth the money IMHO.
