So I finally bought myself a FAT torque wrench, and I'm thinking of doing some testing. I have an FN action and found the "recommended" range is 45-65" lbs. I had my action bedded in Devcon and pillars installed by a competent gunsmith, so I'm positive the action is stress free. The base and rings are are at manufacturer spec.
Here's what I was thinking of doing. starting at 45 and going up to 65 in 5" lb increments, and shooting a group at each setting.
Will I notice any accuracy peaks or valleys doing this? Or am I just chasing unicorns? I already tweaked my handload to max accuracy and it will shoot in the high 0.1"s - low 0.2"s. Yes; a "normal" person would be ecstatic with this, but not me apparently.
Thanks for your input.
