68 Belgium made browning

I have a circa 1968 browning a5!! It's the magnum 3in and says special steel on the barrel!! My question is, am I able to shoot steel shot through this, since the gun is as old as it is?

Re: 68 Belgium made browning

I would think so depending on what the barrel is choked. I wouldn't attempt it if the barrel is choked Full

I shot about a box of 2 3/4" steel out of mine with no problems. It has a Modified choke.
