    Steel shot - who doesn

    For everyone's response.......I'm still new to this sport and have not been exposed to a lot of different guns. My question is.....Do all manufacturers have chromed barrels that tolerate steel shot? If not, who don't?

    Thank you,
    Kurt

    Only problem I've had is choke stretch, but then it was rated for lead, so it's my own fault.

    The wads for steel have thicker petals to keep the shot from rubbing through and scratching the bbl.

    I don't think my Browning BT99s are chromed lined or my 90Ts, yet I shoot steel through them all without issue. Shooting a full choke from 16 back...
