I have the Badger Ordnance base on a Remington 700 PSS in .308 (SA). The base is secured to the rifle with torx screws. Use blue Loc-Tite.

Thanks. I know the ring cap screws are 15 in lbs
and the 1/2 bolts are 65 in lbs. Whats the recommended tourqe on the base to action screws?

Whats the recommended torque on the base to action screws?

15 inch-pounds as well.

15 in lbs isn't much. I would expect more torque on the base to action torx screws. I guess thats what the bluu loctite is for.
Thanks for the info M4.

If your talking about the Torx screws, they come with the Base. I'm sure Brownells has them for sale as well.
