Default Tikka T3 in 9.3x62

Santa was, to be blunt, EXCEPTIONALLY kind this year and if everything on my VW Bus resto goes to plan I'll have the funds to pick up a Tikka T3 in 9.3x62.
Prices here are not as cheap as the competition but neither Weatherby, Remington, Howa or Savage/Stevens make a rifle in 9.3mm.
I've heard lots of great reviews on the T3 but have a few concerns.
Is the synthetic stock on T3 Lite and Lite Stainless up to the sort of recoil generated by this "prod-buttock"(nice way of saying kick-a**) sort of cartridge?
Also, how are the factory rings supplied with rifle?
Some people reckon they're not up to the heavier recoil.
I'd really like the Hunter but I think I'll probably end up with the Lite Stainless so I need to know it won't die on me.
For the record I'll probably be going either a fixed 6x scope or a 1.5-6x to make it flexible for all the hunting I do.
Cheers & God Bless
