Magazine follower query

Are all 10/22 magazines the same? Can you also use them in a K77/22?
I bought some allegedly Ruger magazines at the local Gander Mtn and first thing I noticed, the GM ones had a black follower and the factory ones have a red follower. Then I see a note on the package "For use in 10/22 Only"
But I have been able to use my "red" magazines in both rifles.

For what I got them for, I could use them in my 10/22's and keep the "red" ones for the K-rifle..

Or is it just a difference in materials, the magazines are interchangeable?

I thought that the 10/22 22 magnum followers were black?

Bozz48 will become famous soon enough
My older mags have black followers, but the ones I bought recently (3-5 years ago) have the red followers, as do the BX-25s and BX-15s.

And the newer 10 round mags are the clear ones, so I don't know if that makes a difference. You should be able to use them in anything that takes 10/22 mags. The Charger, for example, takes 10/22 mags.
