Re: Hunting rifle trigger pull weight.

I tried buffing and polishing and adjusting one of my Vanguard triggers several times before I gave up and installed a Timney. Huge difference now! So, I installed one on my 2nd Vanguard without even thinking based on the pull and feel of the factory trigger.

My 3rd Vanguard has a very nice trigger so I haven't touched that one at all. Check yours out first, try to adjust the pull, but if you don't like it don't waste your time on it.

Re: Hunting rifle trigger pull weight.

Most of my LR rifles are set up around 2lbs. It should go off 1/3-half way throught the though process "It should go off any time now". It should be a surprise, but you should be ready for it. I never shoot with gloves. If I needed to, I would probably prefer a heavier pull. The only time a bullet goes into the chamber is when I'm set up, ready to shoot.

My Rem 700 has a factory trigger adjusted down to 3 pounds and it's great for hunting. Not too light, but much lighter than the factory pull.
