I don't remember where, but I read an article about tuning the rifle's action screws to optimize accuracy, so I first started playing with my Tikka 595 in .260 Remington. I replaced the slot head screws with hex socket type and shot a series of 3-shot groups at 300 meters, with the first group being at 5.5 N-m (Gehmann metric tourque Wrench) and discovered that at a setting of 6.5 N-m, the group was smallest. I repeated the test with similar results and settled on 6.5 N-M.

Did the same with my Winchester M-70 fitted with a 30-06 varmint weight fluted, 24 in. barrel and found 6 N-m worked best in my rifle. Same for my Sako AII.

I hope this info. helps.
