Default Ruger M77 Trigger Question

Someone told me that I can reduce trigger pull by backing out the set screw on my trigger...Is the pull affected by the set screw or by the spring in the trigger assembly?
I tried the set screw trick, it did decrease the trigger pull to something tolerable, BUT, now my bolt seems to have a drag to it. Am I having a different problem unrelated to the set screw change?
I think I need a gun smith..

buelah, I put a timney in my ruger 77 and it was a heck of a job. Timney advertises their trigger as a drop in in the 77 but mine required quite a bit of machining on the safety tang. Be prepared to have a gunsmith do it for you if you don't have the tools.

I have three m77's that I have had no problem adjusting to 3-3.5lbs with no creep and very little overtravel.

I had a gunsmith put a timney in mine (all weather Stainless, synthetic, 30-06) and could not be more pleased. Significantly improved accuracy in the field this weekend. My confidence in this rifle is now sky high.
