    Question Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .243 LH -- preferred trigger??

    I'm interested to know what trigger y'all tend to like with the Remington 700. This unit (SPS Varmint LH) has the X-Mark Pro trigger assy.

    Question: On a Rem 700, what is your preferred trigger, for mid- to long-distance target plinking?

    For a target rifle, I prefer a trigger to break in the 12-20oz range, or so. While I love the X-Mark feel, with zero creep and a very crisp break, the trigger weight is fairly heavy for my tastes. Looking for suggestions based on your own knowledge of and preferences for certain after-market trigger assemblies.

    Timney. Pretty much the gold standard.
    I never went below 3.5#, but hey, check this out. It would scare the piss out of me, but if you're benching...

    Jewell Triggers. IMHO, there is no substitute. I've tried Rifle Basix, Timney & Shilen and while all are better than a factory trigger, they aren't in the same league as a Jewell. I have the Jewell (linked above) in my 22-250 and this Jewell in my 24" bull barrel AR-15. The only thing that I consider it's equal is the Kepplinger single set trigger I have in my Ruger #1. They make one for the Remington 700, non ISS rifles, but since it's not a drop-in replacement, I've never been brave enough to try it. When set, the one in my Ruger breaks at 8 oz.
