the other day i was shooting my snap caps with my 700 ald synthetic .308 and i decided to just see what the trigger pull was like on my dads 700 bdl 22-250...on the 22-250 the trigger pull was alot less and more crisp...i'm thinking the pull on the .308 is around 5-7 pounds or something..how much would a normal trigger job cost for my gun do yall think??????

Should be less than $100. I had my factory Remington triggers set to 2.5 pounds by Briley here in Houston and they did a great job and they charged me $75 each for both my rifles.

how about.....FREE. research it some and do it yourself. However be warned...this is not something to be taken lightly, you better make damn sure you know what you are doing cuz I don't want a bill in the mail when you go and hurt yourself because you were wreakless and hurt yourself. But seriously, me and Dan played w/ the trigger on my 5R for about an hour or so and got it set very nicely. But be careful and make sure to slam the bolt home several times to be 100% positive the firing pin doesnt drop.

I personally think 2.5 is a bit light for field work, but others will disagree. I like 3 - 3.5lbs

I'm with Mel on this one. It's too easy to have a negligent discharge out in the rough. For a rifle that will only see range work, 2-2.5# is fine, but out in the bush its good to have a slightly heavier pull weight.

Thanks,

Brian
