    45 inch/lbs.

    Some will say 65 inch/lbs. They can and do run at this torque, but from the factory Rem torques them to 45 inch/lbs.

    Re: remington 700P action screw torque

    They say 45 in/lbs because of the cheaper aluminum bottom metal. It can crack if torqued to 65 in/lbs. Mine never did but it has happened. With factory bottom metal stick with around 45-50 in/lbs.

    With better made bottom metal, either aluminum or steel, and the solid aluminum bedding block in the HS stock you can go to 65 in/lbs without a problem.

    Re: remington 700P action screw torque

    I have been using a 65lb wrench. I was under the impression that within reason (probably 45-65lbs) the actual torque didn't make a lot of difference as long as it was exactly the same every time. I read about some people who were tweaking the torque on these screws and patterning the rifle in between to see what shot best. I chose 65 because i can use the same torque wrench i use for my scope. However, that is a good point about cracking bottom metal. I have not cracked mine yet, but could see it happening.

    I run with 65in/lbs front and back and havent had any issues. I use the stand bottom metal that the 700P comes with. Havent had any issues and the rifles shoots like a dream.
