torque specs

what are the "standard" tourqe settings on all the screws on a rifle?? Im talking about the screws in the stock, scope bases, and rings and any other screws i need to pay close attention too. I have shot rifles and loaded for 8 years but as i am gettin into long range shooting and on my second custom gun in 3 months i would like to know what to set everything back to when i take them apart. I have the whole Wheeler Engineer fat wrench and scope lapping kit.

    The FAT wrench has a list right on the insert with most "standard" settings.
    The companies that manufacture rings and bases usually have torque specs on their websites.
    Most firearms companies also have specs on their websites.

    Do a search on= Torque Recommendations And you should find almost everything you need.

    It is in the Gunsmithing section.
