Steel shot questions

I have a Browning Cynergy over/under shotgun that I have been using the past few years for clay shooting. This season I'd like to do some hunting with it and might use some steel shot with the gun. The Browning user manual states that the barrels and chokes are tempered steel and are OK to use with any SAAMI loads (including steel and other non-toxic shot).

However, I was wondering if shooting steel shot regularly has any negative effects on the bore of a shotgun. Should I be concerned about regularly shooting steel through my O/U or is it more or less the same as shooting lead? Does the use of steel shot significantly accelerate wear of the barrel?

Thanks in advance!
