    Built a .300 BO AR for hunting. Mil spec trigger is a little heavy. Looking to replace it with something that is a little smoother with better break. Single or two stage? Why? Specific recommendations?

    Thanks.

    PSA EPT with a set of JP springs is what I'm running in both of ours.

    If it’s just the weight that you don’t like, try a set of $10 JP yellow springs. I have them in a few rifles, and they do really well.
    I especially like them with a NiB trigger since they tend to be even smoother than std Milspec.

    For my hunting ARs, I went with a drop-in trigger, about 4# of pull, single-stage. I'm finding my shots on deer have less time to prep (like a 2-stage would) and want just a single consistent squeeze.

    These guys have great prices: https://www.graniteridgeoutfitters.com/main.sc

    I have a two stage CMC in my 300blk hunting rig. It's a 2# set, 2# release. I plan to swap it out with one of the single stage triggers I have ordered, and pretty much for the reason mentioned by @Sas quatch.

    I've built an AR that I plan to get into longer range shooting with. I'll probably drop the two stage in it.

    I’d go with a CMC single stage. Primary Arms has a pretty good deal on them right now.

    All my AR's have a CMC flat in it, no matter the use. I just built a 6.5 Grendel and stuck a 2.5# flat in that. They make a rifle shoot much, much better. and quick to install.
