What you are indicating is essentially what the back boring acomplishes... they open up the existing bore diameter from the chamber end and the shot gets choked down as it gets to the non-bored area at the end of the barrel.
They think the back boring reduces some of the recoil because of the larger barrel diameter reducing some friction. It would be interesting to chronograph 00 B out of a VCS and non-VCS barrel. Reduced recoil rounds might be a less expensive option.
Both gives you the recoil of a smaller caliber rifle.
And it's always fun to show off the work that Hans Vang developed.
