I am shooting a 7mm Rem Mag Sendero and I use purely for hunting if that makes a difference. Thanks.
How well a trigger performs, creep, pretravel and actuation pull all depends on the operator, the intended use and the weight of the firearm.
A good example is my competiton target pistols. I want no creep, no pretravel and a very light trigger pull because the guns are light weight, so a heavy trigger tends to pull the muzzle up when triggering, no creep and no pretravel because target shooting is an exercise in controlled breathing and when it's time to go bang, there can be no delay. To get that trigger demands careful trigger work, something I do myself.
I certainly don't want a half pound trigger on a hunting rifle whereas a half pound pull is ideal for target shooting with a pistol (single action-semi auto).
Far as an all around good trigger on a production rifle, I have to go with the Savage Accutrigger or a Jewel aftermarket.
