I have a 11-87 Skeet, couldn't tell the year. Is there a problem using steel shot in its barrel?

Maybe yes, maybe no. It depends on the individual choke tubes. What do the chokes have engraved on them?

All Remchokes up to modified are okay. In Full, they made a lead only tube and a steel or lead flush tube.
I also have an IM Remchoke tube that has processed a ton of tungsten and a little steel with no ill effects in 3 different guns. I ordered it from Remington around 30 years ago and it is supposed to be steel safe. All it says on it is Remington IM.

Does the 11-87 skeet barrel have a 2 3/4" or a 3" chamber? Does it have the gas compensating system on the skeet barrel? Were you planning to shoot steel target loads or steel hunting loads? I am not familiar with the 11-87 skeet model, but I know the 2 3/4" target barrels for the 1100 were made to shoot 1 1/8 ounce or lighter target loads. If the 11-87 skeet barrel is a 2 3/4" chamber, without the gas compensating system, it may not be designed to shoot heavy 2 3/4" loads.
