    I sent a email to Hastings about their barrels and choke tubes 1 week ago. My question was about shooting steel shot through a s/s choke tube. I have had no response yet. I sold my waterfall 30" mag Hastings barrel to a friend and he asked me a question about choke tubes. I told him to go pattern the !/C tube That came with the barrel and see if he really need another one. If he wants a slightly tighter or a more open tube can he look for a S/S tube that fits.Thanks in advance for the advice. Jim

    Finding a or any listing for choke tube for a Hastings Waterfowel Barrel are hard to find. However listings for Hastings choke tubes abound. Some of these are marked S/S tubes. They do not advertise that they are for steel shot. I think my original post was not clear. If a choke tube is made out of S/S can steel shot be safely shot through it. Jim

    You can shoot steel shot through a stainless tube.

    "Lead Modified is Steel Full" according to the choke manufacturer ratings, not at the pattern board. Dr. Andrew did a test that showed steel actually shoots a little looser than lead with the same choke. Always check for yourself and compare apples to apples.
