View Full Version : Plated Shot ?

Easy one for ya'll. Got a Chinese 20ga SxS that has "lead shot only" stamped on the barrel. Now, I know that means no steel shot but what about copper-plated lead? Can't see that being much harder than lead, at least not enough to eat up the barrel steel.

FWIW, not a bad little gun for $309. Throws a nice pattern with #3 Buck, low recoil, good handling. Have to hone the chambers since it won't easily dump the used hulls but that's my only gripe.

The plated shot is lead so you should be okay.
