Mount recommendations for a Montana99 Shilen 24" #3 contour sporter all stainless bead blast matte hardware. Three barrels three sets of rings, two scopes. SS 6X42 & 10X42. This is a takedown switch barrel one buttstock three fore ends. Brown laminate stock.

Tallys?

I want to resist too many bells and whistles, but would like to add sine/cosine and anticant. I go back and forth on if I should've gone for stiffer barrels but this is to be a cold weather, small aircraft frequent flyer, hunting tool, not a range queen. 25-06AI, 30-06AI, 338-06AI.

Not sure you can get all the tactical bells you are wanting made in stainless.

In a swap barrel situation it would be better off with a scope dedicated to each barrel. Rezeroing and resetting the turrets with each swap of a scope between barrels will be time and ammunition  consuming over several barrel swaps.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Yes, the Talley QD lever style rings are probably your best bet for a 2-pc base "affordable" quick-detach scope mount system in terms of ability to return to zero. I believe the Recknagel "swing mounts" are more repeatable at returning to zero, but they are very expensive.

I wonder how well this rig will return to zero given BOTH 3 QD scope/mount AND 3 QD barrel/forend sets and how well it will continue to return to zero long-term after repeated assembly & disassembly? Long term success requires a very tight, well-designed, well-made joint between receiver and barrel.

Keep us posted on what you decide.

I may well make a choice to go with a third scope after I have shot them a bit, though the 338-06AI and 30-06AI are remarkably similar ballistically on paper at least and with hand loads may be well within reasonable hunting accuracies especially with a ranging dope chart. What are the suggested rings / mounting for the rifle I described?

Thanks so much for the reply, I will check out the recknagles, there ain't much cheap about this. It started out as a Savage barrel swap, and has grown from there. I plan on several hunts per year with planning and practice in between. This is to be a small plane frequent flyer more than a daily shooter or range queen. The #3 contour is the compromise for ease of packing and reasonable field hunting expectations. In perfect world It might be stiffer, the scope pricier...But the goal is to actually hunt. I like the looks of Randy Selby's work and hope it comes close to expectations. As far as stainless O have fewer esthetic concerns than dissimilar metal thoughts (crazy cathodic protection background I know that the conditions are not likely to encourage the issue is sitting in sea water for 20 years, LoL)

You will almost certainly need 3 scopes for a 3-barrel breakdown rifle system. The probability than any 2 barrels will provide remotely close POI to each other is pretty slim.

...Unless you want to go with a 1 pc Picatinny rail, which opens up many more ring possibilities. To me, a Pic rail looks clunky on a Mauser style action, and blocks part of the ejection port, but aesthetics aside, it might offer better POI return potential.
