Don't shoot steel through the gun, it's just too dangerous with those guns because the barrels are too thin and too soft. Also never shoot steel with a full choke. I'm not an expert but I know that you should not shoot steel through that gun.
Hope it helps.
GEEESSHHH, realize I have never, and never will fire a round of steel thru a gun---unless they start making us for Sporting---but one of you guys tell me why the barrel of a 101 won't work with steel? I can certainly understand about the tight chokes, but am sure indifferent to the barrel deal.
The wad design is supposed to be so that no steel ever touches the barrel, I have picked up alot of steel wads that have been fired, the steel will just barely dimple the tough, thick wad---no way will it go thru. So why?
The 32" waterfowler probably has the standard win chokes in it and is fine for steel shot.
Many of the older 101's have pretty thin barrels and fixed chokes. I don't know for sure that it would hurt them to shoot steel, but I choose not to try with mine. Besides, I think steel shot is crap anyway. Now the hevi-shot is a different story.
