Which is WHY the 180's were invented in the first place...The heavier the bullet with the higher the BC, the better long-range capabilities it will have.

Yeah, whoever told you the 139 and 140's were better at long range than the 168's and 180's is a moron. I wouldn't listen to them ever again.

    Jewell, Timney, or Jard will all be fine for the 700. And if your smith is good, an older style ( pre X-Mark) trigger can be tuned nice and crisp with low pull safely.

    I know well about the old styles. I've tuned alot of them myself. I've become quite handy with them. The X-Mark and X-Mark Pros are junk, in my opinion. Remington should have never strayed from the old style.

    Also if you find a Remington 40-X trigger, that will be an excellent alternative.
