Why does the Hevi-Shot and Wingmaster HD have to be shot through a choke tube approved for steel or lead?

Table of contents


These shots are alloy's of tungsten, nickel, and iron, bronze and a other metals with a density heavier than lead but with a hardness similar to steel shot. If you are using a full choke tube or tighter it is strongly recommended that you use a choke that is stamped for steel and lead.

The choke tubes that are stamped for steel and lead are made of heat treated steel that is designed for use with either steel, Hevi-Shot, or Wingmaster HD, or other tungsten based shot materials. Choke tubes for use with these shots are available from Remington in improved cylinder, modified, full (lead or steel/Hevi Shot), and turkey extra full (lead or steel/Hevi Shot).
