    Approximatly 65 in/lbs.

    However, most people just tighten it down as much as they can without stripping the screw head.

    60 on synthetic about 40 on a wood and 50 on a laminate works for me

    HS Precision says 65 inch pounds for their stock but Remington is stressing not going over 45 inch pounds or you will blow the aluminum trigger guard apart with the countersunk action screws. To go 65 inch pounds they recommended switching to all steel bottom metal. All other 700's they recommended 45 inch pounds as max.
