If the bedding is great and the stock has pillars. It should not change the POI very much.

But seldom is the bedding perfect and if it is not pillar bedded it will/can change with any change
in torque.

Never use more torque than necessary to get the best accuracy, Why; More torque can compress
the stock material, flex the action and effect the actions changes in heat/cold.

If it shoots good at 55inch pounds leave it. Harmonics are effected by every change But the POI
changes may be so small that they only show up at longer distances.
