Question about alignment in Grid and TableForm

Hello,
I wish text objects in Grid would be aligned at center of column and
numbers in ScientificForm aligned at ".". I have tried to use the
following constructions as elements of the Grid but the text objects
are not centered at the centers of columns:

Item["some text", Alignment -> Center]
and
Item[1000*Pi // ScientificForm, Alignment -> "."].

The code I have tried (it is just example):

TableForm[
 Insert[Table[
   Item[N[Pi a^10] // ScientificForm, Alignment -> "."], {a, 1,
    5}, {b, 1, 3}], {Item["First Column text", Alignment -> Center],
   Item["Second Column text", Alignment -> Center],
   Item["Third Column text", Alignment -> Center]}, 3]]

Grid[Insert[
  Table[Item[N[Pi a^10] // ScientificForm, Alignment -> "."], {a, 1,
    5}, {b, 1, 3}], {Item["First Column text", Alignment -> Center],
   Item["Second Column text", Alignment -> Center],
   Item["Third Column text", Alignment -> Center]}, 3]]

How to place text objects at the centers of the columns? Is this a bug
in "Alignment" option?
