I know its probably been covered but I couldn't find anything in a search.

How much torque is recommended for T3 composite stock/action screws? Thanks.

I think it was 25-30 inlbs. I had it wrote down somewhere. Start with 10 on front and back. Then 20 and then 30. Get it....

Agreed with 40. I ran 65 for a range session. Not a good idea.

Yep, 40 should be right in the ballpark.

Unless it is pillar bedded I would go 35-40. My FAT wrench reccomends something like 60in lb for steel pillar bedded
