Default Trigger pull question

What's a good trigger pull for a bolt-action hunting rifle? Let's assume both that it's got an AccuTrigger and that it doesn't have an AccuTrigger. If it's overwhelmingly better to have an AccuTrigger then I want to know, though I'd still like input on trigger pull without it.

Safety? (bumping it on accident)
Accuracy?
Any other comments; I wanna know why that trigger pull is the perfect amount.

Thanks everyone

I have all mine set for 22 pounds. When the deer see me grunting and struggling to pull the trigger with both hands, they are laughing too hard to run.

Seriously, around 2.5-3 pounds. I DO have varmint rifles that are much less, and some set trigger rifles that run about the weight of a butterfly's kiss, BUT- those are used from a bipod or shooting support, more like a benchrest than carrying a rifle in the field. Gloves can make getting a finger into guard without an AD tricky if you have one of those "wish it off" trigger pulls.

That set works for me- YMMV. Light enough to break without disturbing my aim, soild enough to reduce the "WHOOPS!" factor. My best man had a set trigger drilling that, when set, I could not get my finger inside the guard without tripping. That was scary. said thanks, no thanks. Think that rifle could be fired by a sunbeam falling on the trigger.

The first stage of the Acutrigger works like another safety. you can have the trigger set for 6 oz and you can bump it drop it and it wont go off.You cant usualy do that with a regular trigger. What was said before of the 2 1/2-3 lbs trigger for hunting is a good weight. I would not go lighter than this for a hunting rifle.
F.K.
