Depends what I'm hunting.
Deer rifles tend to be tighter than ground hog guns

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog!

Re: What is the Trigger pull on you Hunting gun ?????

I find that I can work with most triggers with proper form.

That said, my lightest is somewhere around 2lbs, heaviest is probably 5-6lbs. Rifles like my 264WM and 300WSM where I will likely want to shoot some distance with them at some point, I work on those triggers to get the results I want.

My 45-70 Guide Gun could be 5-6lbs, and that's fine. It's not meant for shooting much past 200 yards, and it's pretty accurate to boot, so I don't sweat that one.

Re: What is the Trigger pull on you Hunting gun ?????

We've all heard the old saying.."beware the man with one gun". There is an element of truth to it. Whether that firearm has a pull of 1 pound or 10, a persons brain tells the trigger finger to apply what is required.

Myself, switching from a set trigger to a simple trigger on one of my flintlocks will drive me crazy for awhile. I use it exclusively for a period.....then it makes no difference.

My ground hog rifles are 1-2lbs. My big game rifles are all set between 2 3/4 & 3lbs.

I used to really get picky over triggers until I read this EXCELLENT book:

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/429972/...ok-by-jim-owens

It completely changed my view of how to interact with a trigger. Improved my shooting considerably, too.

My triggers all vary a little, but I do a fair bit of dry fire practice with whatever rifle I'm going to use that season or the next day even, and since I've also spent a fair amount of time at the range with it, I already "know" the trigger. Just need some snaps to get back on the horse, so to speak, and good to go.

The 2 rifles I use the most for deer are my Remington 721 and my Mauser action .257 Roberts. The .270 breaks at a little over 2 lbs. The Bob has a peep sight and is my "walking around gun". The trigger on that one is probably about 4 1/2 lbs.

Its kind of a big deal.

Anyone familiar with the Remington 7600? I have it in .270 caliber and hate the trigger pull. I've been looking at the specs but all I can find is the trigger pull is a "preset factory setting." Nowhere does it say what it's currently sat at.
