    If you gotta ask a 1.5-3oz trigger is gonna be WAY too light. If you are planning on hunting with this rifle, around 2 lbs is plenty light. Triggers that pull in ounces instead of pounds are for benchrest, they literally go off when barely touched.

    mud and back woods-

    Have you shot a 140 berger at 1000 yards ? when they exit the muzzle a 3300 they are awesome. Especially when you are competing against guys shooting . 308 or an AR. The 168 bergers have a higher bc and will have ever so Slightly better numbers than a 140 berger, ... After you get past 600 yards . run the numbers the 140 berger is awesome.

    i mostly shoot 1000 yards just in competition. i have killed 5 elk with a 139gr 7mm. one with a 7mm 175 sierra btsp; and two with a 270 grain sp from a 378 weatherby. any idea which worked best? I also shot a record book rocky mtn big horn with a 168 berger. it killed the ram . it did not pass through it. the ram weighed about 350 pounds. the bc of the 168 does make it a little better for long range. the others will work i proved it.
