I have 3 rifles all the same Make and model in three different callibers.
They all range in diferent weights and barrell lengths,I measured the stocks
and they all seem to be identical on the butt side of things,the forearm part is shaped different due to barrell contuers and chamber sizes.

I left out specific detail of actual calliber and exact make and model
to keep bias info out.

Here is my question, I plan on putting the same make and model scope on each one, Should I Make shure all three are set up the same as in position of scope in relation to rifle and eye relief?

The reason Im asking is would it be good to have each rifle feel the same,
along the same lines as musle memory with pistols and so on?
If nessesary I will add details later.

I certainly don't see any reason NOT to have them set up the same, as long as eye relief is good.

Proper eye relief is determined by the gun and how you hold it. You either get a good picture or you don't. Likewise you either get bonked over the eye or you don't.

In theory YES, bit in actual practice I don't think it'll matter much. I would vary the optics on the rifles according to their caliber and potential uses to gain as much versatility as possible.

lets say you have 3 Ruger M77MkII rifles a 22-250 a 308 and a 358

I would put a high powered illuminated adjustable objective scope on the 22-250

Then the 308 would get a quality 3x9x40

Then the 358 would either get a low powered 20mm scope or a reflex style sight.
