Is there any problem with installing Leupold STD A-BOLT LR 50031, Silver mounts on a tikka t3 laminated stainless? Iwas assured at Cabelas that it is ok because the "holes line up" They did the installing when i purchased the gun. I then bought a second set of identical bases when i got home to convert it to a dual dovetail because they stripped the windage adjustment on one mount. I then had to buy a second set of rings, 49899 silver to utilize the second dovetail rings.Scope seems sturdy and mounted easily. My neighbor put his boresighter on and said no adjustments needed, i just need to get to range for breakin and sightin. Is it just me or is it always this hard to get mounts for a rifle? I hope it works? Is it secure enough?

Hello Ken,

The strongest way would have been to use the T-3's dovetail. Next time you need rings, you should think about calling someone who deals in specialty mounts like the folks at SWFA. There are a few companies out there who make top quality stuff and would be very happy to advise you on your needs.
