Simplest thing would probably be to drill and tap them to the next larger size. Or, if removing the scope constantly isn't an issue, you could put a little dab of epoxy (think JB Weld) on the screws and gently put the scope base back on. I'd suggest removing the guts of the action before doing this.... as memory serves, the screw holes go clear through the top of the receiver. Wouldn't want to drop a blob of glue into the bolt.

I put a scope base on my 10/22 probably close to 20 years ago and it's been on since, so there's a chance I'm mis-remembering how it went on......
