What is the foot pounds most use when using a click style Torque wrench to tighten short range benchrest barrel?
Thanks Chet

Most shooters I know use anywhere from 80 to 150 ft pounds. Not critical as long as the barrel is tight. Always grease the threads and shoulders and snug the barrel a few times before the final tightening. This helps lap or burnish the mating threads.

When I use a torque wrench, I have it set at 120 foot pounds. Sure can be tough sometimes to remove a barrel that's put on that tight.
