Does anyone have an ideah on what the correct torque is for a rem 700 varmit barrel action bolts? I picked up one of the Bobby Hart accublock stocks and I am going to mount my .300 wsm to it. The action and barrel fit up in their perfectly, I couldn't ask for a better fit, and I didn't have to do anything to it.... now if I could just figure out how to put a picture on here.
 
Thanks guys, Dave

I think I saw 65 lbs somewhere here, BUT I'm not 100% sure about that.

That is a full-length bedding block, right?

65 lbs. is the norm for Remy-to-block clamping.

I go with 65 (and that's in-lbs!) with my H-S Precision stocks, but your stock may not work well with that. There are a couple shooters I know with H-S stocks who go to 55 in-lbs. They've never had any problems. The important thing is getting back to the same setting whenever you pull the action out of the stock.

It is funny that you usually won't get a solid answer from Remington on this question. They will tell you 45 to 65 inch/pounds.

My advice is to listen to Remington. Whacko
