    Here is a good place to start. It has the factory recommended specs. Be sure to use an inch pounds torque wrench/ screwdriver.

    I torque mine to 45 in lb
    65 seems like overkill

    Remington specs 45inlb.
    Speedy Gonzales (if you lnow who he is ) specs 65inlb on a epoxy bedded HSPrecision and epoxy bedded McM stocks.I personally go with 65 and never had problems.
    To be determined by the end user.Start at 45 up to 65 if you want to expierment.

    Yes, all of my stocks are both epoxy and pillar bedded and have no problems with 65in lbs. If a stock were not bedded, I would consider less torque.
