    Best varmint rifle from factory?

    Another stock question, AI 2.0 vs ashbury sporter vs carbon fiber mcmillan style stock.

    remington trigger (x mark pro) giving very inconsistent pull weights. is it broken?

    I have about 300 rnds on the rifle, and I have not been tough on it but I have adjusted it down to 3lbs since factory it was 7lbs and then it was nice, and gave consistent pull weights, but a few days later it felt heavier so I measured it and it was heavier.
