Yes, they can be backed out up to five full turns, but they need to be backed out the same amount of turns! do not shoot it with the limb bolts backed out a different amount of turns, they need to be the same,
for each full turn that you back the bolts out you will lower the draw weight by #3lbs.

This is how i do mine tighten up both limb bolts,then i got nail polish marked a line from the alien wrench hole to the edge of my bolt towards the limb,on both limb bolts,then when you turn the limb bolt ,it makes u know exactly how much you have turned them,Thats how i did mine,Welcome to the welcome to the Martin Family.;)

I make mine the same,When i am fine tuning i turn the bottom if its needed 1/8 inch,But they should be very close to being the same,
