Re: Shilen trigger
Do be careful when setting a Remington trigger's pull weight down. I did this to my 700VS-SF 22-250. I got the pull down to about 1.5 pounds. I tried everything I could think of as a test. I slammed the bolt closed. I slammed the butt against the floor. I pulled the trigger with the safety only half way on. All worked well and I was happy too.
Until about 1 year and 1000 rounds later when it fired as I closed the bolt after loading. Twice this happened. I reset the trigger to about 3.5 pounds and it hasn't happened since. I hope it never does. It leaves a real sick feeling in your stomache when it goes boom when it isn't supposed to. Fortunately I had been following good muzzle control because there was five of us standing around loading up to go chase prarrie dogs when this happened the first time.
Remember, never let your muzzle point at something you don't want to destroy, especially your hunting buddies, they are too hard to replace. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
