I've always used a modified choke tube for shooting steel thru my 870 express magnum but I've been thinking of going with something a bit tighter. Are the factory full choke tubes safe for #2 and smaller steel shot? My remington super full turkey choke says "lead shot only" right on it but my standard full choke doesn't. What do you think?

Unless you know for sure that a full choke is made for steel shot you shouldn't use it for steel shot. Go to Remington's website, I believe they list a full Rem-Choke specifically for steel shot.

Remington full does both lead and steel, but steel doesn't shoot as well from a tighter choke normally.
