Rib: High-post, 11/32" rib.
Back-Bored Barrels: All BT-99 shotguns feature back-bored barrels. Back-boring is the term for a barrel that has a bore diameter increased to it's maximum specification. A larger bore diameter reduces the friction of the shot charge against the barrel wall. Instead of trying to overcome friction, powder gases expend more energy on the wad base, resulting in an increase in shot velocity. Because there is less constriction or pressure from the forcing cones on a shot charge, there are fewer deformed shot pellets. A greater number of ballistically superior round pellets in a shot charge means more uniform patterns-delivering more shot pellets in the effective part of the pattern.
