Im going to be shooting pigeons this week and before now i've been using a single shot 20 gauge. I am going to however be using my grandpa's old Browing Auto 5 12 gauge. I picked up three boxes of shells of 12 gauge Federal #7 1 1/8 oz. 2 3/4" target loads and it just so happened 1 of them was steel target loads. I am not sure if it is safe or not to shoot this out of the old auto 5. I am not possitive on the choke but it is not interchangable and it is not a full choke. I looked online and many say the old Auto 5's are not safe with steel because the barrel metal is too soft. Is this safe even with the small shot size of #7's?
