I used to aim the rifle while it was bags, shoulder it, close the bolt and put my finger on the trigger guard. Then I'd slowly move my finger back until I could feel trigger contact. Once there, I would just sort of roll my finger on the guard until I got the bang.
I'm sure bench-rest shooters could critique my home-brewed method, but I was just popping squirrels at 300yd, not gunning for 0.013" groups.
My current rimfire match rifles are in the 3# range and I like that a bit better since we shoot from so many positions.
