  I am mounting a new 2.5-8 loopy on a Rem. mountain rifle in 260 rem caliber. Are the dual dovetail leupold mounts a better way to go or would the standard mounts be better with this caliber and rifle?

Standard mounts would be my choice. They're reliable and would hold up to your .260. They also have the windage screws in the rear. It will save some adjusting in the scope which is always good.

The Leupold STD mounts would be plenty strong enough for the .260 Rem mountain rifle you got. The Dual Dovetail mounts are only really neccessary on heavier recoiling rifles. A Weaver setup is usually an even better choice for the hard-kicking magnums.
