    Put a Jewell in my Sendero 7mm RM.. came set at 1 lb. and I bumped it up to 2.5 LBS

    What do you all think for a hunting rifle and minor bench stuff ? A little to high or keep it there ?

    Worried that if shooting with gloves out coyote hunting in 10 degrees or less, wouldn't feel trigger and that it would give me a little room to squeeze on it...

    Thanks for your comments...

    Most folk don't buy jewell triggers to have them set at 2.5 lbs. If you are going to keep it at 2.5, you might as well sell it and put the extra bucks into other accessories. I have four set at about 4 ounces and five set at 1.5 oz. It depends on what you are familiar with.

    Cut the trigger finger out of your glove or use the flop back mittens.

    My fingers are not very sensitive so I had Kirby move my Jewell up to 2.3 pounds. At that weight I can begin to actually feel I am touching the trigger.

    Clay Spencer took most of the slack out of my Timney and I had to put it back in. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Doc Ed set my Rem 700 at about 2.5 pounds after I tried and couldn't.
