Does anyone have info on the different brands of torque screwdrivers? I've been looking at the Wheeler Fat Wrench which costs around $50 and one by Weaver Optics for about $35. Are there any others in this price range? Which one has the best accuracy?

Heck I just went to Harbor Freight tools and bought their 1/4" drive inch pound torque wrench and it works just fine. For $20 its a good deal. Heres the link to Harbor Freight...

Hope this helps to give you a more informed decision on what ever you settle on.

That's perfect, 308.
The micro ratchet would be just what I'm looking for and it's right in my price range for the limited use it will receive for torquing bases, rings, actions, etc...

Thanks again for all the info you share!
