remington.custhelp.com..._topview=1

Quote::
For the Model 700 VS and Sendero, the maximum torque settings should be no more than 45 in/lbs for each screw. On the Model 700 BDL and ADL synthetic and wood stocks, the guard screws should be tightened to a hand tight fit or no more than 35" lbs.

Thats right off Remingtons site Smile

ROFL If you hand tighten it according to one of my teachers on avarage you'll apply 25-35ft-lbs of force. Wink

I think my teacher was trying to call us weak or something. Very Happy

I myself tighten something up till just before its too tight and it stripes the screws. Cool

I use Joe's method as well and have never had anything come loose or anything I couldn't loosen. Smile

Fellas it is not a matter of coming loose..it is a matter of not torquing the action and a great way to get accuracy. Case(s) in point.

2 different 300 RUMS in SAKO 75 stainless fiberglass guns. Both identical. One liked 55"/lbs and shot 180 Partitions golds at 3300 + fps and put them in .946" at 300 yds.
The other put 3 200 gr accubonds at .675" at 300 yards at 3150 fps but only at 30 "/lbs.

Neither gun would replicate these groups with these reloads at 300 except on that, and only that setting. Go figure! And both SAKO's , like all SAKOs were free floated from the factory so it was NOT a matter of up pressure on the barrel from the front nub of the pressure pad of the forearm!!!

See what I mean?

Well POP you know alot more then I do!

Tell me is is the same reason the Lee-Enfeild Mk1 No4 were good at extended ranges because of the barrel "vibration" ?? Execpt this is more of a whole action vibration ?? Confused
