I did my own adjustments...
I have a Savage Axis in .223 and found the same thing with my trigger; it was very clean and crisp, just heavy.
If you are comfortable doing so, I snipped off 2 coils from trigger spring and voila! It is now down to a very nice, light pull (do not have a trigger pressure gauge, but I would guess it to be about 2-2.5 pounds).
I found a couple videos on Youtube showing how they did it, and pretty much followed suit.
