Nightforce scope in Sako Optilock mounts?

Does anyone have an idea whether Sako Optilock mounts would be sufficient to hold a 3.5-15x50 (weight 30 oz.) Nightforce scope? I'd eventually like to upgrade to a Near Mfg. rail, but the Optilocks is what I have for now. Any thoughts?

Hi Delta the thing that makes scopes move is recoil what calibre is it and if it is large like an ultra mag does it have a muzzle break?

It's a .300 Win mag, but I suppose it doesn't matter for now. I've decided not to buy a Nightforce at this time.

Hi Delta the 300 would be the maximum that the mounts would likely take with that recoil and Nightforce scope weight i would wait until you have all the money for your upgrade including rings and bases and do it all at once.
