I purchased a Wheeler Engineering FAT torque screwdriver recently. The recommendations on that say 40 inch/lbs. for unbedded, wood stocks. Well, that's way more than I had my M700 Mt. Rifle bolts at, but I gave it a run anyway. The 40 inch/lbs. threw my accuracy all to hell, but this is a rifle that needs to be bedded as it is. I tighten the back screw to about 25 inch/lbs, then I tighten the front one until I feel the barrel start pulling to one side (like I said, it needs to be bedded) that brought my decent accuracy back.
"Daddy, can you sometime maybe please go shoot a water buffalo so we can have that for supper? Please? And can I come along? Does it taste like deer?"
