    After reading many conflicting reports, I called HS Precision this morning to find out what their recommended torque specs are for the action bolts on a Remington 700 (I have a 700 LTR in .223).

    Their answer? 65 inch-pounds.

    Yepper that is right what I have been told, even after I had my VS stock bedded. 65 inch pounds is the # the hard part might be finding a torque wrench inch pounds. There are Seenock?SP ones that are pre set at that wt out there. Sears has a reasonably price inch pound torque wrench, too.

    Brownell's sells small T-Handle torque wrenches in preset increments, a little pricey, but easily fits in my range box.

    Bought the Sears. Made in USA, $65 on sale, 25-250 inch pounds in 1-inch lb. increments. Does a nice job. Now, I just need a dedicated 3/8" socket to fit the Torx head so I don't have to keep stealing from my socket set!!!

    Very important note:

    There is a big difference between INCH pounds and FOOT pounds.

    I nearly ruined my Remington 700P a while back figuring this out.

    Here's Remington's reply for the Police and Sendero stocks: (FWIW)

    "Thank you for visiting Remington Country. Torque settings for Sendero & Police stocks can withstand up to 45 inch pounds but we do not recommend any more than this."
