    How much firing pin fall is too much and how much is too little? I am using BAT B 6mm br small rifle primers if that matters.
    Thanks ACSR

    This subject may have been talked about before but I missed out.

    I would consider .220-.225 minimum. If you need more, BAT makes trigger hangers that will add .010, .020, or .030.

    I'm sure you know that eliminating cock on close reduces it.

    .240 is the number most often quoted for Rem700s. Others design their own. I've seen some new design bolts with .175...doesn't always work as well as hoped in my limited experience.

    I find the PTG replacement bolts to be well designed in this respect...when you adjust cock on close, the remaining firing pin fall is .240.

    It can be more difficult to adjust a remington bolt.
