I am sure it is not a problem. Usually lead shot don't need the help that steel shot needs. I would pattern it to see the benifit of any.

you will have no problem shooting lead out of your pattern master. i use mine for every thing i shoot my pheasant, turkey, duck, geese, trap, and dead coyote threw it. never had a problem.

Yep, both of these post are correct. I have shot a Patternmaster for about 3 years and it handles everything well. I have never seen a choke that has a problem with lead, but there are a lot of them that are lead only or bismouth. Steel is a lot harder and can actually damage certain chokes or barrels on some older guns.

Lead works just fine through Patternmasters. I'm sure you wont be disappointed with your purchase.

You can shoot just about everything trough them except for slugs and federal "Black Cloud"

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
