The 23&P discusses this in some length. Used bolt in new barrel, new bolt in used barrel are acceptable. Using a used bolt in a used barrel are not approved. Both the bolt lugs and BE lugs well have a established wear pattern on used parts that may not mess together well resulting in rapid wear of the lugs. Used parts that meet headspace check could wear past maximum headspace fairly quick...in theory.
