Question:

Choke tubes for steel shot?

Will any modified choke or improved Cylinder choke be safe to use with steel shot? If these are safe, which is better for duck or goose hunting?

Answer:

I never use anything tighter than modified...mostly use imp. cyl. . to my knowledge any i.c. or mod. choke is ok for steel shot....some of my chokes are marked steel ok or no steel some actually are marked as to no steel bigger than *^*..usually bigger than BB like F or T. Steel is lighter than lead so it looses its energy quicker, therefore it is recommended to use 2 shot sizes bigger than the equivalent in lead...4 shot lead use 2 shot steel. With steel, your choke will perform like it is one size tighter. Early season I use imp. cyl. later season mod.( it is still best to pattern your gun/choke/ammo to see what and how it performs at different distances)

Lead shot can be fired through any choke. Steel shot requires a choke tube that is made for it.
