Competition Shotguns Used For Clay Targets:
Boring a 12 gauge shotgun to 10 gauge bore diameter is just a bit to much because the gun will not be consistent and it can only be shot on warm, hot days. The reason for boring a shotgun is simple it shortens the shot string which is the time frame from first pellet impact to last pellet impact. If your going to compete in shotgun sports, its not what you spend for your shotgun, it's how much you will spend on it to make it competitive and this would include going to a gunsmith to have the shotgun fitted to you.
Minimum Requirements For 12 Gauge Competition Shotguns:
These deluxe trap guns dominate the field with sought after high performance advantage giving extras straight from the box.

Why The Extremely Wide Rib:
Browning BT-99, there is not a better single-barrel trap gun, at any price, than the rugged BT-99. The BT-99 features a chrome-plated chamber, VECTOR PRO™ lengthened forcing cone which minimize shot deformation and maximize pattern uniformity, consistency and density. Back-boring increases bore diameter specifications and decreases friction between the shot cup and the bore to maximize shot pellet velocity and reduce felt recoil.
Advantage 1. Barrel - The BT-99 features a back-bored barrel.
Advantage 2. Chokes - Interchangeable Invector-Plus™.
Advantage 3. Forearm - Bold beavertail forearm.
