Here's the question: Is it ok to mount a red dot (specifically an Aimpoint Pro) using a 30mm scope ring?

Here's the story: I bought an Aimpoint Pro for my M1A, and then I waited what felt like FOREVER for my scope mount to arrive in the mail. So, imagine my disappointment when my Aimpoint w/ factory mount could not attach to the scope mount. My on the spot solution was to remove the factory Aimpoint mount and attach a 30mm scope ring. It attached fine and is extremely solid, but I don't know if there is a problem that could result from this. The scope ring only uses about 2 picatinny slots, while the normal base uses about 6. Could this affect accuracy?

I'm trying to win a low mount for my Aimpoint on a bidding website, but if that doesn't work I know someone who is selling low scope rings, which is why I'm asking this question.
