I was wondering if it someone could tell me if it is unwise to fire 3 inch BB's or Magnum 0's through a FULL invector plus choke tube. I've read about barrell bulges and steel shot but can't quite figure it out.

Shells -
ELEY ALPHAMAX 36gram BB's
and
RC50 Magnum 50gram 0's

Thanks a mil..Happy new year to you...

it won't hurt the invector barrel, but according to Browning the modified invector plus choke tube is the tightest constriction that should be used to shoot steel, not sure if it will result in a blown pattern if you use the full choke, or if other problems could arise. My advice is buy a good specialty choke like Kick's, or patternmaster to use in your invector barrel.

IreBrown;

I have this info on a post it in my office, but cannot remember where I wrote it down from, but here it goes.

Shooting lead in a cylinder is like skeet in steel.
Lead in skeet is improved cylinder in steel.
Lead in improved cylinder is modified in steel.
Lead in light modified is improved modified in steel.
Lead in modified is full in steel.
Lead in improved modified is extra full in steel.

Anything tighter than that results in blown patterns and is a waste.

So I would not shoot anything tighter than an invector plus choke in modified to get a full choke pattern using steel.

:shock: While I was typing this, I remebered that it is actually written on the invector plus chokes that I have(I have a full set).

For what it is worth...

Hit them all...
