    Wondering if anyone knows how much torque for 8-40 base screws with a T-15 size head. I believe 6-32's are to be around 16 in/lbs with a T-10 head size.

    Anywhere from 15 to 20 psi.

    I use 20 psi on both my scope bases and rings. I would not recommend going over 20 psi on rings.

    Hope it helps.

    I'll second the 15 to 20 INCH pounds.
