Action Screw Torque
In a nutshell, my take is that if you're "tuning" your rifle with action screws, you may have a bedding problem - the mating surfaces are poor, pillars aren't used, or the recoil lug isn't making good contact. In any case, enjoy the article. I'd love to hear your feedback.

I've stated the same in the past (if your screw tension is critical, you likely have a bedding problem).....Rich
