My gun has optima plus chokes and if you are considering a new gun it probably would also. I heard this and have the same concern so I checked into it. There was some early talk about Beretta not recommending it because of concern about damage to the barrels and it think specifically the chrome lined ones with hevi shot. They has since said that there is no problem with it as long as the shot wad is high quality, which the Remington ones are. I would be careful with the reloads and make sure you inspect the wads for rub through. Beretta has something on it's web site if you want to check it out.
