a buddy just gave me some boxes of steel shot some 6's & some 4 shot 3inchers

I know not to use an Xtra full with steel but how does the steel vs lead perform with the rest of the chokes?

Steel shot does not have the range of lead or the killing power. Always use one size bigger than the lead shot you usually use.

i have no problem with steel shot, the only thing i can tell you is that if you are not using steel shot chokes, they say you are actually shooting a tighter pattern. so for a full pattern with steel shot use a modified choke and for modified use an improved. at least that is what they say. i shoot steel choke tubes for duck season and the steel will kill them dead even at a distance if you can find a duck in mo mo land.
