According to Mossberg NO you can not

Can I shoot steel shot through all barrels ?
No, not all barrels. Barrels with an interchangeable Accu-Choke™ or Accu-Mag™ choke tube system, yes (with proper tubes installed.) However, steel shot is not recommended for older "C-Lect Choke®" or fixed-choke barrels.

Not a problem
You could probably get a 500 barrel that has removable chokes then you could run steel through it.
