Setting the Rem 700 trigger pull....

Just aquired a "new to me" Rem 700 and the trigger pull is still set at the heavy factory setting. I remember that you can drop the trigger set out of the stock and one of the two screws sets the pull. But for the life of me, I can't remember which one. I want to lighten the poundage a little. Can someone jog my memory? Thanks

Thanks. Found the post and how it addressed the sear angle. Very good info. However, I didn't find any info on which of the 2 screws sets the amount of pull. If anyone can enlighten me on which screw sets the trigger pull, I would be most grateful.
