Because the constriction is quick and tight, the large shot could bridge and swell up your choke/barrel. With some aftermarket chokes you can get a full that shoots steel, but usually they are the constriction of modified and labeled "full" because they are for steel shot.
Anyways, when you pattern your gun you will see that a full choke likely won't pattern well for you at all with steel. Especially for geese, since you will probably be using bigger shot. #BB usually likes modified choke, anything bigger and IC usually patterns better than full.
