With my dads 2013 BR-50, we tighten them in a rotation, but really doesn't matter which way you start. We would do them, as if you are looking at the bottom of the rifle, top right, then bottom left, then top left, then bottom right. Just a little at a time, but we ALWAYS made sure to do the final tightening of both front screws first, then the back ones. We never used a torque wrench and have never had any issues with accuracy. The barreled action has been out of the stock several times, and always returns to zero, and shoots wadded sub 1/4" groups at 50 yards with RWS R-50.

Just wondering...The actions on the 2013, is it still a 54? If so what is the difference in the 2013 vs. the 17xx's. Thanks in advance, humbly, dave:eek:
The 2013 takes a 54 style bolt, but the action is totally different. They don;t even look the same at all. I would do the action/barrel screws the same. Start with the front screw, tighten a little, then the next one, snug it slightly, then the back one the same. Then starting with the front one, tighten all the way, then the second one, then the back one. Don't forget to set your head space. You may have to use a feeler guage to see what it is the first time, then maybe have to move it to find the sweet spot. Measuring each time, and record your results when you shoot. That way you will know which one was best if you have to go back. Easier to set it that way, then just going by the seat of your pants..:eek: :D
