    I would say it is a matter of preference. Torque them properly and thread-lock and you'll be fine either way.

    +1.....Agreed. As a preference I prefer a single heavy duty nut over the allen head.

    That is my preference as well. For scope mounts. I find it less endearing in a vice president . . .
