Since having three I should know but don't. I will say that I do know first hand the barrel will move forward if it isn't tight enough. Mine are tight enough to not move but I couldn't tell you what the value is ATM.

Can't remember if it's in the manual, which I don't have privy to right now, but I just snug it down solid. I'm old and weak so to a young strong 200 pounder that might be over tightening to them. It doesn't have to be "farmer" tight as they say.

This answer might be a little late, but....
As a new owner to a Sako Quad, I think I have an answer to your question.
65 inch pounds is the answer for a Sako Quad barrel torque settings after a barrel swap. I got this information from George Gardner at GA Precision who built my Sako Quad rifle. Action screws are 18-25 inch pounds same source.

Hope this helps you or others.

This is right from the Sako Quad Manual.

Barrel screw torque 7nm = about 62 in/lb

I had never seen the exact torque needed. I just tightened mine with the wrench provided with the rifle by feel. I would tighten just until I could feel the wrench start to "flex" a little, and that was it. Never did come loose on me.
