    I would say either a Jewell (the best and most expensive) or maybe a Timney. You can adjust the stock Rem trigger to about 2 lbs safely, from what I've heard.

    I have two Rifle Basix Trigger Remington 700 - 4 oz to 20 oz in my Kirby hope chest. I believe Kirby approved the purchase.

    If you want to go to 1 1/2 lbs, the same thing is a bit cheaper HERE

    I'm about as far from being a competent smith as you can get, but from what I've read Jewell may have a reputation for being the best BR trigger, but it's far from optimal for LRH, tactical and certainly in the range he's looking for ( 24 ox ).

    Kirby has done trigger jobs on 6 guns for me (four rem 700's and two A-bolts) - all around 24 oz. I'm more than delighted with the triggers that came back (most were over 100 oz when I sent them).

    For off hand, bi-pod, tree rest - a trigger job is the biggest improvement most folks can make to improve accuracy. (IMAO).

    Even at 24oz the jewell is probably the best trigger. the Riflebasix seem to be inconsistent, I have one that is very good but goodgrouper has one that is not quite as good. I have heard good reports of the Shilen but dont own one myself. The Timneys are a down grade from the stock Remington trigger.
    If you dont want to take it to a gunsmith you can buy a spring kit from darrel holland at 541-439-5155 and do it yourself.
    As far as instructions to ajust your own the best description is in the July 2001 Varmint Hunter Mag. try varminthunter.org to see if they still have a copy.

    Yes, just google the subject. I wouldn't mess with the sear screw like some of them say to do.
