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.

    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.
