I swapped a few scopes around recently. I was surprised at how little adjustment I needed from one rifle to the next. A Falcon taken from a springer and put onto a nitro-burner only needed elevation adjustment, and that was fitted with a set of Hawke mounts, as cheap as I would ever go. I am sure that I could have swapped between the two with a click chart, but found the scope way too heavy, slow to parallax when hunting and overpowered for a 12 ft-lb gun. I soon went back to my regular more basic set up.

A collimater would make things easier for you with non QD mounts, but that said; on a springer I never use more than a 6 x 40 or a 3-9 x 40/50 set at six. Probably a cheaper option than a collimater!
