    Yes Steve, it can and has been done for a long time. There are a couple of side affects you should be aware of.

    Of course the barrel will become lighter. This may or may not be a concern to you. I have had guns that doing this procedure it changed the feel/balance of and they became "whippy". I didn't care for the gun after having the barrel work done. I have also had barrels that were to heavy and had this procedure done to make them more responsive.

    After it's done the poi MAY change. A good barrel smith can regulate the pattern back to where you want it. It's important to do before and after patterns.

    Diamond Hone Backboring


    Several years ago we sat down with some engineers and told them what kind of tolerances we wanted to maintain while backboring shotgun barrels. Through a joint effort, we came up with our 'Diamond Hone'. We are able to maintain tolerances that we have not seen anywhere else in the industry. We are able to achieve these tolerances by using opposing stones, rather than the conventional 3" stone and shoe, or worse yet a reamer. The advantages to a backbored barrel are reduced recoil, more efficient choke, improved patterns and a faster swinging gun. Backboring a barrel can also restore choke that has been removed.
