    Start with a Jewell !

    They are the best.

    There are other good triggers but the Jewell will exceed all of your expectations.

    I have several Jewels and they are very good. I recently put a Rifle Basix LV1 on a Rem 700 shot in competition, and like it a lot. It adjusts down to 2 oz, but for a hunting rifle, you do not want something that light. A trigger in the 2-6 lb. class would be about right for you.

    Look into a Kepplinger set trigger
    #3-4 unset for hunting and 8oz pull weight when it is set

    Jewell HVR top safety @ about 20 ozs plus in most cases you can adjust the pull weight with no disassembly .

    Amen ... on the Jewell triggers. At last count I was using 14 of them and have been for the past 15 years. Everything in the safe is set at 6 oz's, never a failure and a major component in accuracy for me. No comparison with others that have attempted to "reinvent the wheel" with the latest and greatest trigger system.

    Take a look at Jewell's Two Stage triggers. They'll give you the added safety of the heavier trigger while providing the lighter pull of a set trigger, no problem. Don't know if you've ever used two stage triggers before, but most folks who've taken the time to adapt to them won't even think of using single stage triggers afterwards.
