Default Scope Mount Help

I just got my Sako and Tikka rifles and went out this past Saturday looking for scope mounts. I ended up putting Leupold rings on my Sako 75 Hunter with a Zeiss Conquest 3-10.5*44mm scope. Was that a mistake or should I have waited to find Sako rings?

I have a Leupold VARX-III 3-105.*40mm scope for my Tikka Whitetail (30-06). Do you'll recommend Leupold rings or Tikka rings? Where can I find Tikka rings? The Tikka reciever has the dovetail rail but is also tapped for a base. Is a base necessary or can I just use the rings attached to the rail?

I wouldn't use anything but Leupold or Burris rings and bases.

Leopold and Redfield bases are one and the same. They are the best bases, strong and simple. Milett makes good bases and rings as well however I don't care for the windage adjustmentson the bases, too much room for error and they can shake loose.
