Re: Torque on factory Sendero action?
I did a test on torque setting earlier this year. I tried one test just using feel from a small wrench. The rifle shot good. The torque setting was close to 30" pounds. I took the same rifle and increased it to 40, shot the same size groups. I increased it again to 50, still performed the same. Next i went to 60, and still again the same groups, (all are running in the .2 size at 100yds) Then i got crazy and increased to 75, the group size started to flare, two shots in one hole and allways a flier. Last test was 85, now the groups were 1.5" and scattering. Depending on the action material and bottom metal, i set rifles from 45 to 60" pounds.
