What trigger weight is ideal to you in a hunting rifle? I like a lighter weight between 1.5 and 2.5 lbs for a hunting rifle.
I spent many years shooting varmint rifles with triggers from 2-6 ounces for 6 months of the year. A light trigger doesn't bother me. Today, for hunting guns, I'm happy anywhere from 12 to 24 ounces depending on the weather and level of recoil. I find it difficult to manage heavy recoil where I have to take a pretty firm grip on the tang, yet do the very precise fine motor skills on the same index finger managing a light trigger. Yet I don't get along with heavy pulls. I'm also losing interest in heavy recoil so I guess it all works out.
