Where do you have your trigger set at?

How many pounds/ounces are your triggers set at? Iam not talking your 1500+ yard hunting rifles. Iam talking about your 0-800 or so yard hunting rifles or your backpacking lightweight rifles.

I think Iam going to have mine set to 1.5lbs.

    I like 2.5 pounds for hunting and 2 pounds for targets.

    The Jewel triggers feel lighter than they actually weigh and any thing lighter than 2 pounds
    feels extremely light. The factory triggers are different and should be weighed to be sure they
    are not set two light (Could be a safety issue).

    With a really good trigger you can go to 3 pounds and not effect accuracy.

    I will be having a Kimber Montana trigger adjusted. My concern is the rifle is SO light that a "somewhat" heavy trigger can really mess with me at the range.

    I have all mine set as close to 1 1/2 lb as I can get them, but more important I want a clean break and the pull to be the same every shot.

    All of my rifles are set at 2lbs. Makes it easy when everything is constant.

    2.0-2.5 pounds on my Weatherbys. I tried 1.5 but just didn't like it that low because if I have a glove on or whatever it's just too easy to set off.

    My Remington 7400 is at 3 pounds because it's as low as it will go without really messing it up.
