    Torque Specs?

    Hey guys, really appreciating all the help here. I just received my Leupold Rings and EGW 20 moa base for my savage to mount my bushnell 3200 scope. I was wonderind if you guys know what in/lb to torque everything down. I think a piece of paper came with the EGW base that said 20in/lbs, seems low?
    but for the leupold rings i didnt see any torque specs. any idea what they should be for the screws that clamp onto the picatinny rail?
    as well as the 4 screws to clamp the top half of the scope rings down? thanks again

    ok, i did even more research and I have found the answer. The PRW Rings require up to 25in/lb of torque when attaching to the base and up to 22in/lb when attaching the rings around the scope.

    Yeah,the rings-to-mounting base torque fluxuates between 25 in/lbs to 65 in/lbs depending on brand.I use XTR rings that use 65 in/lb torque specs.Goodshootin'

    Don't forget to use loc-tite on the screws holding the scope rail to the receiver. They take a beating and will work themselves loose.
