    Rimfire Barrel Torque

    I bought a Rim-x action and a pre-fit 22 lr barrel. I have no idea how tight a barrel should be on a rimfire. Before I put it on "snug", I did a google search and found around 35 in. lbs. I thought I'd check the experts here first.

    Threaded barrel are usually set up so the the barrel is tightened
