I stuck an aftermarket choke tube with copper-plated shot, once. Got it out.... but not gonna do that again!

Yours may be better than what I had.

Copper plated and nickel plated lead is fine in anything; it is still lead. Tungsten polymer matrix and Bismuth are fine in anything. But, everything else you better check. Hevi-shot is now a whole line of stuff, and they even have some loads that are fine, but the harder tungsten alloys, and all steel is liable to damage a lot of things.
