Question about two-strap slings

These slings with two shoulder straps, or a chest strap, hold the rifle with its side against the shooter's back, which seems to put a lot of torsion on the swivels. Do you use a swivel that actually swivels, rather than just swinging in line with the rifle?

A custom rifle I saw recently being carried vertically down the centreline of the back, rucksack style, had the QD studs threaded into the side of the stock and forend.
