Check to make sure that the wood “boss’s” didn’t split on you when you torqued it back down. That would certainly cause some shifting to occur when shooting. Ask me how I know..Unfortunately, after putting the action back into the stock and torquing the action screws down to 40 in lbs front and back, the gun won't seem to group worth a darn. My previous pet load, along with everything else I've tried, now shoots 1"-2" groups(5 shots).
The question has been asked on several occasions what the torque for bedding screws and scope bases should be so I though this might be helpfull. "NOTE" These are based on full engagement of threads. Wood, Fiberglass or Synthetic stock without bedding pillars- 40 inch-lbs. Wood...
This seems appropriate here..
