I recently purchased a 535 Waterfowl/turkey combo. I shot some turkey loads out of the turkey barrel and loved the gun. My questions are though that when i bought it at Dicks sporting goods, no one knew anything about the gun. I would like to know if the chokes and barrels that came with the gun can handle steel shot? Could i use the turkey barrel for anything other than the turkey choke? Will the other choke tubes fit in it? Can any of the barrel's/ chokes handle non-toxic's such as hevi shot or bismuth? What is the biggest shot that can go through each choke? Lead and steel. Thanks for the help and sorry if its really newb or has been posted already, its my first post/time on the forum.

As for if you chokes can handle the steel? Yes and any other shot you want to put in it. Now for size, idk. But for choke size, any choke that will fit flush at the end of the barrel once screwed in is a good fit.

Yes, you can shoot steel through either barrel, but not with the turkey choke the short barrel came with. The 535 uses the same standard Mossberg/Winchester/Browning Invector chokes as the 500. The waterfowl barrel should have come with at least one choke tube. Use a modified or more open (IC) choke with steel.

The Mossberg 835 uses a larger diameter barrel and chokes.

From the 535 owners manual:

ACCU-CHOKE™ TUBES - are designed for use with LEAD or STEEL shot. Each
durable choke tube is clearly marked, as a guide, with the pattern it will
produce.
To remove choke tube: Loosen with choke wrench provided, turning it counterclockwise.
When the choke tube is loosened, remove it completely with your fingers. Place choke tube on
a clean, dry surface.
To install choke tube: Screw the tube clockwise into barrel by hand and then tighten the
tube until snug with the choke wrench. Flush fitting tubes fit completely inside the barrel when
properly installed. Do not use excessive force when installing. Tube tightness should be
checked periodically.
Tube tightness should be checked periodically.

The Mossberg chokes will be marked LEAD ONLY if they are not safe to shoot steel out of. X-Full & XX-Full are lead only, there may be others....

When using lead, you can use any size shot you'd like with any choke... antything from #9 skeet load all the way to Single "O" Buckshot... Typically, the larger the shot the more deformation you will get and the patterns won't be as good. For example, I use 0000Buck for HD, I get the best pattern with a fairly "open" MOD choke, using a tight (Full), or tighter, tends to break up my patterns and give me less shot in the center.

As for steel, the more open chokes pattern better since the steel doesn't deform as easily as steel and makes using a pattern board even more critical.

Hope this helps....
