All my rifles have some type of QD mounts.Has anyone used a similar combo? Was it worth it or, is keeping it simple with one bullet weight and scope better?
This is reliable. Holds zero. My African 375 has German type swing mount.
Purpose of my QD mounts is that in case i need iron sights I can remove scope, and use iron sights.
However, going two Africa, and switching bullets and scopes, to me it looks too complicated, and sounds more like academic approach.
I understand the logic - making 375 as versatile as it once was (when it was invented), for long duration full bag east African safari, from longer shot and lighter bullet on some antelope to close shot with heavier bullet on buffalo
At that time, bullets were also of basic cup and core construction
Today, safari is one week, bullets are better. Frequently buffalo is single animal hunted in one safari.
Sometimes, it is buffalo and other PG species.
375 H&Hm 300 grain, like swift a frame, for all, will work all round. And keep few solids available.
However, combination of two scopes, or a scope and red dot, or similar, can be considered.
But the purpose is if one scope breaks down during travel or while in the field, then another one can be used.
