They are now recommending equal torque (35 in/lbs in wood) on both screws, tighten front one last as usual. The laminated ones could stand 40-45 in/lbs if desired.
Stocky's take: Specially built for Weatherby's Mark V 9-lug (.300 Weatherby Magnum size) action length these beauties are built to hunt. Fits German, Japanese and American made rifles with a standard #2 contour barrel. Fit's #1 contours as well, the difference is mainly in the chamber area (small gap where it tapers) and is barely noticible, I just dropped my favorite old German Lightweight .300WM right into it.
It's widely held that laminated stocks create the best combination of wood-like beauty, balance, durability and accuracy of all gunstocks available. However it is not well known why:When a laminated blank is made, the color-dyed hardwood sheets are compressed in synthetic resin permanently bonded under thousands of pounds of pressure. This process completely impregnates the wood pores with a transparent synthetic material. This means that these stocks have all of the advantages of plastic stocks without the dull look, feel and muzzle-heavy balance of an injection-mold or fiberglass unit. Perhaps most importantly, they are far more silent in the woods ... no game-spooking "tink-tink" sound when accidentally tapped by a limb or neck-slung game call in the field.
100% American Made - Carved for you from best-quality Vermont Rutland Corporation hardwoods, the sole manufacturer of laminated hardwood materials in North America. Please do not settle for that cheap imported junk. I have been in the wood business for over 20 years and can tell you some real horror stories.
