Is 2.5lbs considered acceptable or would you recommend I go to 3lbs?
If it's safe at that pull weight, and you like it, leave it alone. I would recommend testing the cycling of the action and safety in the cold, as in as cold as you are likely to be hunting. I personally like my triggers set at 2-2.5lbs., any lighter and I can't feel the trigger when it's cold.
