Default 2 liter swing top

I've read that priming sugar needs to be adjusted down when kegging. While I'm not kegging yet, I am increasing the size of my bottles.

This weekend I'm bottling a 2 liter swing cap. Should I adjust the priming sugar down a little. Or will I be okay if I bottled it like I do everything else. I didn't have any problems when I did a 1 liter. But the 2 liter has me a little more concerned.

ok, you have say 5oz corn sugar in 5 gallons... once it's all mixed in it doesn't matter the size of the bottle... I've done everything from 12oz, 16oz, 22oz, and 34oz bottles... priming stays constant.
