The factory Tikka mounts will not hold up with the larger calibers. Do yourself a favor and get something better. I prefer the DNZ one-piece solid mount. Best 60 bucks I ever spent x 3 rifles.

    I don't have much faith in aluminum rings so I hit 'em good with loc-tite and they've been fine on the 270, even burning almost 70 gr. ball powder in one load(bucks like a 7mm) using wc872 and a 130 bonded- I had to get it to shoot....Dang interbonds
