    Weatherby Trigger pull???

    I will be sending my .300 Weatherby into Weatherby to get a Accubrake installed and I wanted them to adjust my trigger as well . I was looking for a more "crisp'' trigger pull. I have a Sub-Moa Vangard SS and the factory setting for the trigger seems a little heavy.

    So I was looking for some imput to see what every one else is useing,and what they like for their trigger pounds? I belive the stock setting for Weatherby is 7 pounds and can be ajusted down to 3 pounds. I was thinking about going down to 3 pounds but wasn't sure if the trigger would be to sensitive? What do you guys think?

    I put my hunting rifles at 30-32oz. So 3 lbs isn't too light. Target rifles I set at16-20oz.

    As long as it's clean with no creep I think 3# is definitely light enough. I have a couple Vanguards and have them set as low as I can get them. One of them (the older one) need to be sent to an authorized dealer to have the creep removed, but it's very clean now.

    If 3# is all it goes down to, I would have them take it all the way down. If it's too light, you can move it back up yourself (assuming it's the same trigger as the regular Vanguards. I lowered mine as much as it would go (safely) and it still isn't quite as low as I'd like it. If you have them do, definitely ask them to be sure to remove any creep! You sending the rifle to Atascadero?
