I am looking for insight from others who have used a full choke. I just bought a used 20 gauge. It has a fixed full choke. I understand that I should not use steel shot because it could blow the muzzle out.

My question is about lead shot. I did some reading online and others guys said not to use 00buck and some guys said they used it succesfully. They said that 00 buck will spray and not pattern well.

I plan to run pheasant/turkey loads that are lead. Can anyone provide some insight? I plan to do some testing and maybe even try #4 buck if it's lead.

Ultimately, the 20gauge is for coon/turkey.
