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.

Can you shoot steel shot in an older Stevens 311 shotgun without damage to the barrels?

No. yup, hasn't hurt my two in all the years it has been mandatory on waterfowl Sort of like driving your 1940's Ford at interstate speeds. Will do just fine for a while, but eventually something is going to be damaged. Newer guns use harder steel for the barrels and even they get more wear from steel shot than from the old lead shot or newer (more expensive) soft shot. You can shoot steel out of the shotgun as long as the barrel has not been backbored. The steel shot remain in the wad cup of the shot until it hit the choke at the end of the barrel, so the shot does not actually touch the sides of the barrel. (this applies to all shotgun barrels). Make Sure your Chokes are not FULL, but Mod or Improved if your going to shoot steel

Can you shoot steel shot from a Stevens Model 620?

One can shoot steel shot from any shotgun. But there's a catch. (Why is there always a catch?) Be advised that steel shot can cause damage to the barrel of the weapon. It (the steel shot) is much harder than lead or other soft alloys used in shot making. Steel shot is much more environmentally friendly than lead shot (which is why is came into being), but how much does it jack up the weapon in which it's used? Advice from a gun smith or even from a knowledgeable gun dealer should sufficiently illuminate the issue to permit arriving at a workable decision as to whether or not to use steel shot.
