    I was told to put 7 Newton Meter's on my stock. I went to a conversion site and did not see what I needed. What is the torque in foot and or inches? Thanks.

    Here's the conversions:

    Nm to ftlbs Multiply By 0.738

    Mkp to ftlbs Multiply By 7.23

    Ncm to inch ounces Multiply By 1.416

    Neil,

    My foot pounds, How's yours doing? And a Newton Meter is a super long fig bar? A foot long is a hot dog! :)

    Yes, it might probably be more correct as pound feet, but it was a quick cut and paste. My newer torque wrenches are calibrated for these two units at the very least. I might have some antiques hanging out that are calibrated in ft-lbs, since that is actually what is stamped on the gauge or dial plates.

    Now, we need a good explanation of the difference between foot pounds and pound feet, and they are two different things.

    Adios, Dirk

    Pounds-Foot is torgue

    Foot-Pounds is work and how fast that work is done is Power.

    Clear as Mud?

    My old torque wrenches are incorrectly marked, unless they knew I worked fast.

    Quack Shot,
    How many additional ft-lbs of work are needed to seat those "oversize" Fiocchi primers?

    If that's for the stock bolt, it sounds a little light. Maybe it's a balsa wood stock.

    That is what they recommend for a 3200 stock bolt.

    "Snug-plus" and about at the limit for a 6mm thread.

    I never realized who small a Newton of force was.

    I got what I needed and the stock is on.

    Stokinpls, yes I thought what I read was light for the stock bolts also. I got a torque wrench from a friend and he set it to 62 inch pounds or 5 to 6 foot pounds. When I was tightning the bolts I thought it was going to tight. It kept going going and going. It finally clicked. Believe me its tight and not going to move. I was very surprised it was that tight.

    Thanks to all who made a post and helped.

    Hi Don!

    The Fiocchi primers are not really "oversized". But any difference in your foot pounds would depend on your shoe size and how tight they fit! If I wear a half size too small, my foot pounds pretty badly. The difference in work would be much less than that involved in a primer discussion, here on TS.com!:)
