I looked real quick and a lot of sites don't have a problem with it. They talk about patterns for geese and duck. Didn't see anything that said no, anyone else?

The shot itself is protected from the bbl by the plastic sleve till the round exits correct..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Sort of, greg

The cup on the end of the wad does protect most of the bore, but with the splits in the side that allows it to open, some of the pellets still make contact with the bore. I don't see how it could be too bad, as most manufacturers know many will be using steel shot nowadays. I'd contact the company to be sure, and if nothing else, next time someone tells you that, you can either confirm or correct them based on the manufacturer, not a bunch of guesses from us rejects here.
