I am thinking of going with a Timney Trigger between 2-4 pounds. I was maybe thinking like 2.5 pounds.
I set all of my triggers at 2.2 pounds. they are light but not to light.
I have tried other weights including very light and found them to be dangerous so I settled for
2.2 and it seams just right for me.
Be sure and weigh all custom triggers because they can fool you. I use Jewell and Timney a lot
and they feel different set at the same weight. (They allways feel lightest than the factory triggers.
2,5 to 3 pounds is a good place to start with a hunting rifle and you can tweak it one way or the
other to suit yourself.
I do not recomend any thing less than 2 pounds for hunting rifles. Some people can get buy with
less weight but the first time a round goes off before you are realy on, you will add a little weight
to your trigger.
Bench guns can be set much lighter because they are in position (Pointing down range) before
a round is inserted. so if it goes of before you are ready or intend it to, it is just embarrassing.
Note : Be sure you know which screw to adjust before touching the trigger and DO NOT adjust the
sear unless you are an expert. (This leads to most of the accidental discharges).
