The 1100 is a gas-operated semi-automatic shotgun chambered for 12 gauge only. It has a magazine capacity of four rounds in the internal tube magazine. The gun was first manufactured in 1963.

According to the Federal Trade Commission website, “Remington Arms Company, LLC Watts Indoor Range5899 W Richard Jackson Blvd Ste 126Orlando, FL 32819,” it is recommended that you use only premium high-velocity lead shot shells or copper plated Buckshot since steel shot can damage the shotgun.

You can shoot steel shots in a Remington 1100, but there are a few things you should keep in mind.

  • First, a steel shot is harder than a lead shot, so it may damage the gun’s barrel over time.
  • Second, steel shot is less dense than lead shot, so it doesn’t produce as much power when used for hunting.
  • Third, a steel shot is more expensive than a lead shot, so you’ll need to budget accordingly.
  • Finally, always check your gun’s owner’s manual to be sure that shooting steel shots is allowable.

With these things in mind, you should be able to safely and effectively shoot steel shots in your Remington 1100.

Yes, you can shoot steel shots in a Remington 1100. Steel shot is a bit harder than lead shot, so it will wear down the barrel of your gun more quickly. shooting steel shots at high velocities can also damage the choke tubes in your gun, so be sure to use a lower velocity setting when shooting steel shots.
