Virginian and C3: Thank you for the replies. I'm really glad to hear I can shoot slugs through

asterisks. To th...

Just called Browning, they said no-go. The guy says you can shoot steel thru any old Auto-5
without danger of hurting your barrel. However a "Ring" will appear behind the choke. He says
