    Choke tube For Beretta 390 is full choke that is silver in color and has PB-F--SP on it. Does not say lead only, ok for steel etc. Can I use this for steel shot?

    Thanks

    Politically correct the answer is no, can it be done? I have done it

    The "SP" means it has been proofed for steel, but Beretta doesn't recommend using anything tighter than Mod with steel. Seems odd that they would say it's proofed for steel but don't use it, but what do I know? Here's the direct quote from the Beretta site:

    "Question
    Can I use Steel Shot with my Beretta Choke Tubes?

    Answer
    We suggest that - when using Steel Shot - you only use choke tubes marked with the SP (Steel Proof) identification on the side and that you use the most open choke system possible – i.e. Cylinder / Improved Cylinder / or Modified. We DO NOT recommend use of Steel Shot in the X-Tra Full Turkey / Full / or Improved Modified choke tube."
