First try backing the torque off to 35 in/lbs and shooting a group then after cleaning, go to 40 in/lbs
and shoot another group. Watch your groups and as long as they are improving, increase the torque
in 5 in/lb increments not to exceed 60 in/lbs.
Be sure and clean between every group to give the rifle a chance and to make every test the same.
(As barrels foul groups can change and invalidate the test).
You may have to re bed it if you tightened it to soon (I let my rifles set in the bedding 2 to 4 days
before I torque the action)to that much torque.
Hope this helps.
