Probably one of the reasons why double set triggers fell out of favor in the US after the end of the black powder cartridge era. You still see them occasionally on modern high-end European sporting rifles but they are rarely seen in the US except on reproductions of classic muzzleloaders and BPCR guns (Sharps, Winchester 1885, etc.).

Forty years ago, I built a heavy barreled 6mm varmint rifle on a Mauser action, put it in a Fajen stock, and fitted a Canjar double set trigger to it.
The rifle would shoot silver dollar size groups from the bench at 600M.
Never should have sold it.

"Hatcher's Notebook" has a chapter on them and how they work.

I do a lot of BPCR shooting and most rifles in that game have them.
