Timney trigger report on Creedmoor

New Timney 641C trigger on Ruger American Predator 6.5 creedmoor and took a few minutes away from my sick wife to try it out on paper.
Shooting Hornaday 120 grain A-MAX at 100 yards. No wind.
First pic is off a cheap bi-pod (it shows). Flipped up the stand and got my tube socks stuffed with rice and used them for my base with much better results
Pic two is the result of changing from the bi-pod to a better rest of tube sock rice bags.
Checked the trigger pull of the Timney again and again still showing just above 3 lb pull.
Loved the Timney. Just enough creep and over travel. Crisp break when you expect it.
Since I made no adjustments to the pull I might play with it and try just a small change, perhaps drop 1/4 lb to 2.75 or 1/2 to 2.5.
Nothing wrong with it the way it is but want to tune it and see. Going to try the 140 grain tomorrow.
Like I said, I'm open to any suggestions as this is new to me and I'm just fumbling through and grateful for all the suggestions you guys may have. I need MORE!!

I have tried a couple dozen different combinations of powder and projectiles and have found (for me at least) that my RAP loves 123gr AMax at about 3000fps. It did not like the 140s though the results would be perfectly fine for hunting. I also dropped down to 95 grain to try it out but the target looked more like it was perforated by a shotgun at distance....lol

Been shooting ammo off the shelf and about the only thing I've found (in quantity and in stock) is the 120 and 140.
I don't reload but see it in my future.
Buddy has a great set up he said I can use so I'd just be out the materials. Feel funny doing that even though he would be glad to offer, I think I'm seeing another small building going up in the back yard.
