Just setup some signature zee rings on a rifle..I thought it was odd in their directions they recommend 30-35in pounds for the rings, not the cross bolt screw. Can anyone clarify this? I've never seen such high torque for rings.

No way would I have tightened down with 30lbs of torque. I set mine on twenty.

Scope seems fine but I won't be able to shoot the rifle for a week or two. Hopefully those bushings absorb some of that torque. If so they'll be buying me a new one..I'll put a picture on here of the package stating the specs.

I don't think you have damaged the scope. It is possible but I doubt it. The spec is 30 in on the base and 20 in on the ring caps. I don't know why they have not corrected the packaging. When I first started mounting scopes I used to mount the Zee rings to the 30-35 spec on the package and never saw an issue with any mechanics, optics, or damage to the tubes. If they did cause an issue I would certainly call Burris immediately. They have pretty customer service.
