not any easy answer. older guns can't use steel shot, it'll erode the barrel.however, good rule of thumb, most modern manufacturers don't recommend steel shot in full chokes. mod. or imp. cy. it's o.k. barrel erosion or barrel bulging is dangerous and will ruin you gun

Is an Iver Johnson 12 gauge shot gun safe to shoot?

Impossible to answer without having the gun in hand. Iver Johnson made good, sound, utility grade firearms for many years. These were the guns of the mechanic, farmer, small shopkeeper- well made and safe to use with the correct ammo. However, we cannot see YOUR gun, and have no way to judge the condition. You should ask a competent gunsmith to examine your gun, and I WOULD avoid using steel shot in the gun- that will cause accelerated wear on the chokes unless the gun was made for steel shot- which THOSE were not.

Can a Harrington and Richardson 20 gauge Topper Classic shoot steel shot for waterfowl?

If your gun is older than 1990 I wouldn't. Not saying it will destroy the barrel but steel shot is harder than lead and before steel shot came into use most manufacturers had no reason to test the barrels for steel use. It can damage the barrel or worse. If your gun is older than 1990 I wouldn't.
