Each rifle/stock combination requires slightly different torque.
The best way I know to find it is to start at minimum torque (Somewhere around 40 Inch Pounds)
and increase by 5 lb increments checking accuracy as you shoot.
The torque specks for a given stock are normally Maximum and should not be exceeded.
The answer to your question is, YES. Torque can effect accuracy.
