2. It has a aluminum bedding block, so what do I torque the action screws to?
I typed out a detailed description and when I went to post, the site went down so i will try
Bedding blocks are designed for installation without bedding and work fairly well, but I bed
them any way.
I normally Carry the bedding out from 0 to 1" depending on the barrel size and shape (If the
contour starts at the recoil lug I dont bed the barrel at all. If it has a straight shank I will bed
1/2" to 1 " and then remove some or all of it if it does not shoot as well as it should.
If you re bed the stock you have clear all of the bedding around the action screw holes and
ad a bushing or washers until it touches the reciever to support the torque.(Up to 65 inch/pounds)
As it is now I would stare at 30 inch pounds and work up to 45 inch pounds or until best accuracy
