Mounting options? QD or fixed?

So I have two scopes I love, but for different reasons. I have a Zeis 6.5x20 with Duplex that I love for load development and trying to shoot small groups. I also have a 3x9 Zeis with A-600 bdc reticle I really like for hunting. When I get consistent around 800+ I might like the big scope more in the field.

So I want the best of both worlds so I am looking for a system that I can use to switch easily between the two. To date I have only used simple fixed rings.

I don't mind re-zeroing when I switch back, but don't want to be far off.

I also have two guns right now that I want to use. One is a Browning A-bolt and the other a Tikka t-3 stainless.

Can/should I do a picatiny rail and some QD rings like Talley or Warne?

How realistic is this. Will I be spending too much time in the switch process? Are there easily compatible components? What are your opinions. The A-bolt is being shipped today so I really want to order mounts very soon.

It is easy to switch scope in rings to a pict. type rail, only minutes. If it is zeroed it should be very close. You need to keep rails same type, LIKE mil spec pic. rail can be different spacing than a weaver
