Does it matter if you change BP of the same type between guns??

Because of the manufacturing tolerances I think it will be wise not to swap the BP between guns.

I agree, if its the QRBP, it needs to be specifically fitted to that rifles barrel. Now the older plugs, Sure, I don't see a problem with the older non qrbp, it would just be like installing a new plug into a rifle.

My brother in law is using my previous QRBP in his Optima that I had in a Encore Bergara barrel. He just tighten it down with the tool like you would when you first install it. Hasn't had any issues at all and has been shooting it for well over a year now.

The only issue you would have is fouling in the threads if you didn't have a good fit. If it got crush fit to a smaller barrel, and the different barrel was bigger. You won't have a good fit.

If you have to use the tool when you switch to a different barrel. You'll have a good fit. It may not fit the original barrel anymore though, because you crushed it too far to fit the original barrel. 

If you're lucky enough to get two barrels exactly the same size. The BP should work in both barrels.

I don't suspect you would have an issue with those two guns anyway.

I have a solution for you. Use your wife's nail polish and in the tightening tool slot, paint one one color, and the other another color. Then all you have to do is look in the slot and you will know which goes where.

I added a picture to above to show how I handle multiple breech plugs.

Red = Rifle

Purple = Pistol
