Default Question regarding Hevi-shot and H.S. Strut Undertaker

I noticed that HS Strut makes a choke tube specifically designed for Hevi-shot (HS Strut HS Undertaker) which has a .675 constriction. I currently own the regular HS Strut Undertaker choke tube which has a .665 restriction. Can I shoot Hevi-shot through this choke tube safely or do I have to get the .675 restriction model?
If I do, will it harm the barrel or action?

Has anyone shot Hevi-shot through either of these choke tubes and what kind of patterns did it deliver?

I don' t know about the undertaker choke but I have shot it thru the Rem Ventilator with .655 and had no problems and a great pattern.

Seems like a lot of guys are doing fine with the smaller chokes, but a Hevi-Shot rep. told me no smaller than a .670? The other story I heard is that when you start getting too small the shot may actually slam into each other and create a unstable pattern? my two cents.
