Hi Ryan,In Kevin Robertson’s book The Perfect Shot 2, he suggests for a one rifle Safari using two different bullet combinations with a scope zeroed for each bullet weight and Quick detach mounts for each scope. I Kind of like the sound taking a .375H&H with a 1 - 4 power shooting 350 gr. Bullets for buffalo and a 2 - 12 power shooting 250 gr. Bullets for plains game but, I’m not sure I like the quick detach mounts.
Has anyone used a similar combo? Was it worth it or, is keeping it simple with one bullet weight and scope better?
I have used this concept with my 375 RUM using Talley QD rings and bases. They work great and keep the zero. I can highly recommend the Talley QD rings. The other benefit with going with QD rings is you can carry you scope(s) in your carry on luggage, which I did, and just have your rifle in the gun case. By the way, I used a Zeiss Diavari 3-12 for PG and a Zeiss Diavari 1.5-6 for DG. Worked great.
If you like to tinker this is a great way to go. If you want to keep it very simple just use the 2-12 scope for everything and go with 300 gr. bullet.
