Find out if the choke tube is approved for steel. Not all Remington full chokes are. I don't have a full choke for my 1100 but I'm guessing it would say on the tube.

If it is a full choke for steel it will be fine. A full choke is the only choke I have shot on my past three guns and one of them was the one of which you speak. It will not mess up your barrell, i have even shot steel through chokes that are for lead only (improved modified) and had very good results and no problems.

I have the same gun. Go ahead and shoot it, it will be fine. I have shot thousands of rounds through that gun, almost all steel and it still shoots like the day I bought it.
