Fitting Breech Plug To Barrel:

Using a depth gauge I measured the depth of the threads at the breech end of the barrel to determine the length of the breech plug. This indicated I needed to remove aleast an 1/8" of the plug to fit the end of the barrel.

I grinded it and finished with a fine toothed file to reach the proper depth. Then I champhered the end of the plug to fit into the barrel.  The breech plug was threaded into the barrel and tightened till it stopped on a flat.  Using a small chisel I made two marks on the bottom flat. This way if the plug is removed, these marks can be aligned to ensure the plug is fully seated.
