Im mounting nightforce ultralite rings on my sadlak mount for the m14.

The picatinny rail then is aluminum- and the nightforce ultralite uses titanium crossbolt and jaw. Will this marriage of titanium(super strong) and aluminum(weaker than steel) combined with the harsh recoil of the m14 cause me problems?

There is always a chance of running into problems when scoping an M14 but the difference in the materials isn't going to cause problems.

You could encounter similar problems going onto a steel rail with aluminum rings. Just make sure you're using the manufacturer's torque specs for the rings.
