Your gun will shoot steel, your choke tube will shoot lead or lead substitute but not steel

I'm guessing your choke is a full choke. Just go get another choke, like IC or modified, etc.

Just realised. This is the turkey forum, I thought I click on waterfowl[&:]. For turkeys I'd say use the full or get an extra full turkey choke.
Why shoot steel shot out of a turkey gun?

As mentioned before the barrel will shoot steel, you just have to get a choke tube that is rated for steel.
