My solution to this problem is having several necks and using one mouthpiece in each, when they have significantly different bore diameters.
That seems a great reason to have more horns, each with its own mouthpiece.

Not really, just several necks for the same one or two horns.

Work with me - I NEED more horns, and I‘ve run out of good excuses.

I did that recently on baritone. My regular mouthpiece is a Level Air and they have a huge shank bore. I was trying something different so i picked up a cheap Chinese neck that actually plays fine. I reduced the cork diameter on this one so i could give the mouthpiece a proper go but it was a wasted effort. So now I have an extra neck, and i think i paid about $40 for it.

"Mouthpieces do not fit on cork" --> Buy extra necks
"Necks do not fit on horn" --> Buy extra horns
"Horns do not fit in budget" --> Get extra job
"Jobs do not fit my lifestyle" --> Sell extra mouthpieces

The problem solves itself - you just need to be patient.
