over/under adn steel

3 posts in this topic

I don't like to shot Steele and never have yet, through my over/under. I shoot a lot better with my over/under and would like to use it for ducks--- any one see any real problems shooting steel through it. What are some Negatives of steel as far as wear and tear of the barrel? What would be the max size shot of steel you would use?

If it is a 'modern' firearm, there should be no problems running steel through it. Almost all are all manufactured to handle steel. Some of the higher end upland guns may have issues, but many of my friends use their O/Us w/steel no problem. Manufacturers know that steel isn't only relegated to the duck blind and that in many instances is needed to hunt upland game on certain public land, they in return have made sure the guns they produce will handle steel.

Good Luck!

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas. We also fund scout projects, playground equipment and many types of sports equipment for area teams.   For more information on the LCRA or to register for fishing, go to www.lcraonline.org
