I have a ProHunter Muzzleloader for which I plan to purchase centerfire barrels in 338 federal, 270, and 243. since all the barrels are physically the same, could you buy one Khales MultiZero scope, put on Warne quick release mounts and rings and sight it in at one of the settings for each barrel. Is that realistic or am I just dreaming?

I believe it is only the elevation knob that can be set for multiple zeros.  If that is the case then it probably would not work quite as easy as you are hoping.  As it will be very unlikely that you will be able to move the scope from gun to gun without having some changes in windage, do to the mounts or barrel or other variable.  But if you kept track of the windage you could do it.
Really you could do that with any scope though.  Just keep a log book of how much adjustment is needed in the turrets as you move the scope from one rifle to the other.  You will definitely want to buy a mount that guarantees to return to zero.

I've pondered the same idea long and hard and even written some on the subject. Yes, it can be done and can save you $$$$$ if you do your homework. I'd suggest angle lock bases and rings and something on the order of Warne Maxima QD (as u mentioned) rings as your foundation. You likely would/will need some confirmation shots to ensure hunting accuracy, but the concept is well within the realm of success with todays advanced optics and mounting systems! Most of us would reconfirm zero on a rifle when it (or the other barrel in this case) has not been used in a while. Copious notes kept when switing barrels would also be a key ingredient.

First let me say I have multiple barrels for my three Encores.  Next let me say Theory - good however in actual practical application this is not satisfactory.  Suggestion buy three barrels put Sightron S1 3-9 scopes on the two you will use the least and buy a really nice scope for the one that  you will shoot most often, or buy a mix of scopes you think you will like like one Super Sniper 10x, One Aimpoint 9000 L and one Kahles 3-12x56.  If you want put them all on quick detach system so you can move them around.  Just once you sight them in leave them in place, If you switch them do it at the range then sight them in and leave them in place.

  I also will recommend that you have a custom barrel made by http://www.bullberry.com/barrels.html  for the barrel you will use the most and be aware that you will need their forend with it so be prepared for the sticker shock and remember its worth the difference.
Not sure why the .243 if you have the far superior .270
(I would think .223 rather than the .243 as there is just so much brass, bullets and cheap ammo available for that cartridge although it is a little light for anything larger than a raccoon. )  The 7mm08 is just a step up from .243 on that .308 case and a lot more knockdown.
 
 I have a .375 H&H for encore and not many people enjoy it - rather a light rifle for that kind of recoil.  I  think a 45-70 barrel  with an aimpoint would be a good choice especially if you reload.  Also a 6.5x284 would be high on my list.

Thanks for the input, Guys! I had the idea that I could put a complete armory in a single gun case. 209X50 muzzleloader, . 243 for varmints (coyote, bobcat), .270 or .30 for whitetail or mulies, and the .338 Federal for elk, bear and moose. Your thoughts are valuable, because as you say, theory does not always equal practice. I will continue to evaluate the options and act on that which will give me the best result in the field rather than the gun case and my wallet.
