The reason they recomend 45 in/lbs is that the embed is not a "V" block design but a U that is slightly
smaller than the reciever. This makes the block ride well up on the reciever where it makes contact.
This is a good system as long as you dont over torque it. (If to much torque is applied it will spread
the top of the block and become just a channel/inlet that will have to be bedded.
Being aluminium, once you spread the top of the block, it will not return to its original size.
Start your torque at 40 in/lbs, shoot a group and increase to 45 in/pounds and shoot another group.
If accuracy is worse back off. if it doesn't improve leave it at 45 in/pounds.
The only reason for torque of 65 in/lbs is if a rifle is in "Hard Service".
