Hey I went to walmart earlier today and picked up a box of turkey loads for my Mossberg 12 gauge. I got Winchester Double X 5 shot, and it wasn't till after I bought them that I noticed they are copper plated lead shot.

So here is my question. My choke says "Lead shot only" so will the copper plated hurt the choke?????

I just want to make sure I won't hurt me, the gun, or the choke.

I just wanted to update and say thank you for all the eased my mind before shooting. I have to say, with the Mossberg choke that came with the 500 Turkey Thug, with these shells it gave me my best pattern by far at 30 yards....at @ 15 yards (yes I know that's strange test but our fence was in the way lol) it blew a hole through the old plywood (dead center) that I staple my targets on...be it that board has been shot now many times, but still lol.

I will also say that is did pack a larger kick that other shells I've tried.

Now if only Mr. Tom will walk in front of me.
