Need some input here. I had my Rem 700 30-06 glass bedded, barrel free floated and pillars installed the other year. Gun has a Factory wood stock.
The Smith had them torqued to 30"lbs.
The POI was not so great. I then re-torqued them to 35" lbs, seemed to shoot better. When I referenced my notes I had them set at 40"lbs prior to the work.

I had same work done on my 300 RUM with Factory wood stock. Different Smith. He set the screws at 70"lbs.
