    @shooter_013 are you wanting to shoot steel shot through a SxS? That would rule out most of the older Russian, Spanish and English shotguns unless their chokes & forcing cones have been relieved.

    All of the modern Turkish SxS guns are fine for steel and appear to be good value for money. Just a thought.

    some of us shoot steel through those said older ruskies without issues....stick to loads below 32 grms and smaller shot size in tighter barrel.... they are built like a brick shit house...and one other thing guys dont seem to get....the BORES are smaller right the way along so the degree/amount of restriction is the same as other brands eg it starts out at 11mm and drops to 10 vs it starts at 13 and drops to 12
    peice of cake to releive a choke yourself with simple tools...... dont try cutting off baikal barrel and relying on choke guage to tell you when you have cut off enough as the statement above will show (I own one done by so called expert in a shop that he was trying to get to half and quarter choke from full n fuller....ballsed it up its open and open now,guage still reads between half and quarter on both)unless you have small pond and dont want any choke at all.
