I like a trigger pull between 3-3.5 lbs. Lighter on a varmint rig and around 3.5 on a hunting rifle.

Triggers have more to do with accuracy than just about anything.  If you buy anything but a custom or semi custom rifle, you'd be much better off to spend $100 less on a scope, then spend that money on a trigger job. I think anything less than about 3 lbs on a hunting gun is dangerous.  I also don't think there's anybody here that can tell the difference between 3 1/4 and 3 1/2.  Most guns, even very high quality ones, will vary that much from pull to pull.
