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!

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
