60-65 inch pounds has been passed around for McMillan stocked lugged guns. Don’t know about wood, I was going to use 50 for my wood one I’m building. For comparison my McCoy M1 built in 2001 has 40 inch pounds etched into floor plate by Don
Thanks tgilkey, I haven’t pulled these apart yet but will check floor plates. One of these is in a McMillan and the other is in a MC wood stock. My son and I share a Nelson rifle at the Perry SA match and I stumbled on these and thought we could give them a try.
I’m only looking for a starting point for torque and don’t want to spend a bunch of time testing them with different settings. We both know that a rifles accuracy is best achieved with quality practice
Very happy you found these. I wanted one very much when I first started shooting Highpower but couldn’t afford one of Fowler’s lugged guns. So now I’m building my own. Enjoy shooting these with your son, I used to have so much enjoyment in shooting matches with my girls, but they grew up on me. Enjoy the practice and enjoy the matches.
