I've found some 2 3/4 steel 6's, and have seen steel 7's. After having shot ducks for several years now with steel shot and knowing how many shots I usually fire at doves, I'm not overly optimistic with steel.

Ive used the Winchester 2 3/4" 6 steel, and it worked ok. about like 8 lead, on late season birds. Used it in a goose field that a TWRA guy also had permission to hunt. Didnt want to be caught with lead for doves while hunting geese, too. Inside 35yds its pretty effective, but you'll have some cripples outside 35.
